Adopt A Roadway

The city's Adopt-A-Roadway program greatly improves the appearance of roadways and public right-of-ways throughout Trotwood. It reduces the cost of litter removal, and it works because dedicated volunteers do their part to make it a success.

How It Works

Each year, groups and organizations that volunteer their time to helping clean up Trotwood's roadways truly make a difference. Their efforts also ease the load on the city's Public Works crews, which enables them to devote more time to road maintenance and special road projects. The volunteers' reward is the civic pride that comes from knowing they've made a huge difference in their community.

  • Adopt a 1-mile section of a roadway
  • Dedicate 2 years to the program
