A Pinellas County Highway Department Program
Administered by Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Inc.
What is ADOPT-A-MILE?
Adopt-a-Mile is a cooperative partnership between the public/private sector and Pinellas County. It is a program that allows individuals and/or groups* to participate in community involvement through the "adoption" of a one mile section of county road. Participants agree to perform four cleanups a year to remove litter and debris. Road adoptions greatly enhance the appearance of our roads and go a long way to reducing the debris from entering our waterways and polluting the natural habitats of our native wildlife.
*A group is defined as a business, a public or private school or a civic, social, fraternal, community or religious organization.
