Organize your cleanup

  • Select your preferred date.
  • At least two weeks in advance, call 206-477-3600 to check the availability of your preferred date.
  • After your date is confirmed with the Adopt-A-Road Program Coordinator, you can reserve your safety kit(s).
  • Safety kits include materials for up to ten people.

Pick up your safety kit(s)

Before your clean-up

  • Review the Adopt-A-Road Safety Rules with your volunteers at or prior to the clean-up event.
  • Have all volunteers sign the Informed Consent/Release Form. Volunteers under age 18 must also have a Minor Participation Permission Form signed by a parent or guardian.

After your clean-up

  • Return the safety kit(s) in good condition within two business days of your cleanup so that others may use them.
