The Adopt-A-Road program was created in order to work in partnership with volunteer organizations to reduce roadside litter and/or noxious weeds and to build civic pride in a litter and noxious weed free county road system in Island County. The agreement does not cover state, private, or roads not designated under the program.
Island County is responsible to provide safety training for crew leaders, portable warning signs, hard hats and vests, Worker’s Compensation Act coverage for Volunteers for medical treatment, Adopt-A-Road sign acknowledging each volunteer organization, and evaluate performance of organization.
The volunteer organization is to assign a leader to each cleanup crew who shall have a copy of the program with them during cleanup, sign the Adopt-A-Road Program Agreement and Registration, Release, and Indemnity form, comply with all rules in ICC 12.28.040, and provide a Medical Aid Coverage Record within seven days of cleanup.
If you are interested in joining the program, would like more information, or have any questions, contact the Island County Public Works Department at (360) 679-7331.
