Gillespie County Adopt-a-County Road Litter Program

Gillespie County Commissioners Court is pleased to introduce its Adopt-a-County Road Program to maintain the natural beauty of our County while decreasing the cost of litter pickup.

This program is modeled after the very successful Adopt-a-Highway Program by the Texas Department of Transportation that has been operating in Texas since 1985, and has grown into a national and international litter-prevention effort, saving taxpayers’ dollars and keeping our right of way clean.

The Gillespie County Adopt-a-County Road Program focuses on Gillespie County roads to support and recognize groups and volunteers who are willing to help pick up litter on our County roads to keep Gillespie County beautiful.

The County will:

  1. Work with the participating individual or group to identify the specific section of County road to be adopted.
  2. Erect at least one (1) sign on the adopted section with the participant’s name displayed.
  3. Provide safety information, trash bags, traffic control signs and safety vests.

How to apply:

Request an application form from the County Commissioner of your precinct, or print the application from our website. 

Submit your completed form to the Rural Addressing Department located in the Courthouse Basement, Room 101A or email to litterprogram@gillespiecounty.org. Contact information is on the application form.

Your County Commissioner will contact you to get your Adopt-a-County-Road Program on its way. The links to the left will guide you through this new exciting litter prevention program!  

Thank You Gillespie County

We hear a lot about the importance of recycling—and with good reason. It helps to reduce the amount of trash we send to our landfills and conserves natural resources. However, it’s important to remember that there are two other Rs—reduce and reuse—which are even more effective ways to protect our environment.  Help spread the word to friends and neighbors.  Thank you for supporting the Gillespie County Adopt-a-County Road Litter Program!
