The Adopt a County Road Program was established as an anti-litter program to rid County roads of litter and to improve the environment.In this Program, a volunteer organization, agency or individual adopts a section of a SussexCounty road, in or near their community, in order to remove litter.
To acknowledge your work, the County erects road signs, which state that you have adopted this section of the road.In addition, the County provides various supplies (when funding is available) and the pickup of the litter bags when they are filled.Organizations/agencies/individuals will need to call the Sussex County Road Supervisor when a litter pickup needs to be arranged.
Under this Program a contract is signed by you and the County of Sussex.It states that you agree to adopt a County road or portion thereof for a minimum of a one (1) year period (there is a 2 mile minimum) and that you agree to conduct a litter pickup at the adopted site a minimum of four (4) times per year.You will receive a safety orientation session provided by the Sussex County Division of Health and then you will be responsible for providing a follow-up orientation at the site prior to each pickup.
At the present time, SussexCounty has approximately 45.16 miles adopted of the approximately 310 miles throughout the County.This is a great way to help beautify your community.
If you or your organization/agency is interested in Adopting a County Road, please call the Sussex County Department of Engineering and Planning, 973-579-0430, to obtain an application form.
