Application / Permit

All groups are asked first to fill out and return to the Monroe County Road Commission for approval, an Adopt-A-Road application form (PDF) giving the location and a contact person for the group or organizations. The forms help us track which roads have been adopted. These forms can be obtained online or from the Maintenance Office of the MCRC. Please inform us of any changes in the contact person for your group.

After receiving approval, a copy of the application form will be returned to you to serve as your permit. A letter will accompany this approval with instructions on how to obtain the safety video, vests and trash bags.

If your group is unable to pick up on these dates, you may choose to participate a different date. Groups are also not restricted to three times annually. They may do more if the group wishes. In either situation, litter picked up outside of the scheduled dates must be disposed of by the group.

A Note About Safety

Your group will be asked to conduct a "safety meeting" outlining the safety procedures with all participants prior to picking up litter. All safety information and a video will be provided by the Monroe County Road Commission after your permit has been approved.
