Litter Cleanup & Adopt-A-Road

There are three ongoing "adoption" programs for litter control and cleanup available in Boone County (in addition to the Iowa Department of Transportation's Adopt a Highway Program).  Keep Boone County Beautiful provides volunteer training, signage and litter collection supplies for all three programs.

Adopt-A-County Road

There are a number of miles of Boone County Secondary Roads available for adoption. For volunteer safety concerns, these are restricted to paved roads with a minimum of a 6' wide shoulder (shown in pale blue on the map below).

Before completing an adoption form, please contact Carrie Self at 515-433-0591 or by email at to confirm road section availability.
