The Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) program was established in 1988 by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) in response to growing public concern regarding litter along the state's highways. The AAH program is administered by the NCDOT Office of Beautification Programs, and is a joint effort between community volunteers and the NCDOT. Its purpose is to decrease the amount of litter on North Carolina's roadsides and improve the beauty and quality of the environment.

For additional information about the NC Adopt-A-Highway program, we encourage you to view their site and learn more about the efforts to enhance the natural beauty along North Carolina roadways.

Adopt A City Street

The Adopt A City Street program, established and coordinated by Keep Charlotte Beautiful, offers organizations and individuals the ability to make a difference in their communities by volunteering to adopt a City street, and committing to a clean-up of the adopted street at least three times a year. A minimum of one mile must be adopted and Charlotte Department of Transportation will post two signs with your group's name on it.

For additional questions about the Adopt A City Street Program, please contact Keep Charlotte Beautiful at or 704-353-1235.
