Littering along the highways and byways of Robeson County is increasing and we as a county of strong and faithful residents need to pull together to make a change. Litter impacts our environment, our economic development, but most importantly our quality of life. Encourage your community, school, church and friends to adopt a local road and let's pull together to clean up our county.

I Need More Information
The Adopt-A-Highway Program (AAH) was established in 1988 by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) in response to growing public concern regarding litter along the state's highways. The AAH Program is administered by the NCDOT Office of
Beautification, and is a joint effort between community volunteers and the NCDOT. Its purpose is to decrease the amount of litter on North Carolina's roadsides and improve the beauty and quality of the environment.
The links on this page provide additional information about the N.C. Adopt-A-Highway Program. We encourage you to view our site and learn more about our efforts to enhance the natural beauty along North Carolina roadways.
