An interested organization or group must qualify and contract with Harris County for one-year increments to clean a designated stretch of roadway. The location is based on a site determined by the organization or group within a targeted area of Precinct 4. Areas are usually one mile long, but exceptions are made for larger groups.
The participating organization or group is asked to clean their designated roadway at least once every three months. Precinct 4’s Community Assistance Department coordinates clean up times and provides the necessary equipment including safety vests and trash bags.
Signs denoting the participating organization or group name are placed at both ends of the adopted roadway. The signs acknowledge the organization’s or group’s participation in the program and their involvement in the community.
The Harris County Precinct 4 Adopt A County Mile Program is a litter abatement program designed to offer Harris County residents an opportunity to become actively involved in reducing the amount of tax dollars required to keep county roadways clean.
This program encourages participation from school and church organizations, local businesses, homeowner associations, and other civic-minded groups interested in cleaning and beautifying targeted stretches of county roadways in Precinct 4.
