The purpose of the Adopt-A-Road Program is to involve Ogemaw County citizens in keeping their local roads clean, safe and attractive.  Any group of people can adopt a road.  We encourage service organizations, schools, families, scout troops, senior groups, and businesses to get involved in the program.

Groups that request a specific roadside area will be assigned to that area on a first come first serve basis.  Every attempt will be made to assign you to your road of choice.  We request a distance of two miles or more.

We require that you watch a safety video prior to your first clean-up.  We will provide you with safety vests and trash bags. 

All groups that adopt a road will have a sign displayed on their portion of road recognizing their involvement in the program.

The dates scheduled for pick-up vary. Usually they are 2 weeks prior to Memorial Day and 2 weeks after Labor day.
