Adopt a Highway

Top

1. Benefits

The program helps beautify Saskatchewan by picking up litter and trash along the highway. It allows volunteer groups to select a section of highway and help remove litter at least once a year.

Top

2. Eligibility

Any individuals or groups who are interested in the program can participate. Safety is always the number one priority. All permits will be valid for one year.

Top

3. How to Apply

Participants must follow these requirements and responsibilities:

  • Select a representative on behalf of the group.
  • Follow the guidelines, safety requirements, minimum age requirements, and other terms and conditions established by the ministry.
  • Pick up litter a minimum of once a year. The permit holder may choose to pick as often as necessary to maintain a clean right-of-way.
  • Notify the ministry prior to starting each cleanup and upon completion of the clean-up.

Each district administers the Adopt-A-Highway Program and will ensure the permit holder understands the program. There may be cases where the application will be turned down such as:

  • Cleanup work has already begun by others.
  • The area does not meet the definition of an acceptable section.
  • The area would create a safety hazard to program participants or the public.
  • Adoption of the section creates a condition that is counter-productive to program.
