DCR's Adopt-a-Stream Program

It's up to each of us to keep Virginia's rivers, streams, lakes and bays clean. That's the idea behind DCR's Adopt-a-Stream Program (AAS). The waterway cleanups supported by this An Imageanti-litter campaign provide a chance for local businesses, civic groups, watershed associations, churches, schools, environmental concerns and scouts to work together or separately to do their part.

The statewide program aims to reduce litter while advancing citizen stewardship and understanding of the commonwealth's precious waterways. Adopt-a-Stream promotes education, public outreach, citizen involvement, partnership and community capacity-building through Virginia's diverse constituencies.


Virginia's Adopt-a-Highway Program

It's free to participate in Virginia's adopt-a-highway program!

The Adopt-a-Highway program provides an opportunity for you or your family, business, or civic group to clean up litter, and we will recognize your efforts by erecting a sign with your group's name after two pickups have been documented.

Currently, 18,000 Adopt-a-Highway volunteers collect more than 25,000 bags of waste along Virginia's highways. We estimate that saves the commonwealth over $1.35 million that would have otherwise gone to clean up Virginia's roads.

Please join in this statewide effort to keep Virginia beautiful! The process is simple and the results are inspiring!

STEP 1: Complete an Application and submit it to your Regional VDOT Coordinator.
STEP 2: Choose a cleanup day and recruit volunteers.
STEP 3: Pick up & Document your cleanup.

Each year, over 1,200 affiliates and participating organizations engage volunteers to take action in their communities through programs that deliver positive and lasting impact through events focused on beautifying parks and recreation areas, cleaning seashores and waterways, handling recycling collections, picking up litter, planting trees and flowers, and conducting educational programs and litter-free events. In 2012, 4.2 million Great American Cleanup volunteers worked tirelessly to return nearly $230 million in measurable benefits in 20,000 communities across the country.
