Litter must be picked up a minimum of twice every six
months. Most urban locations require litter pickup once
or twice per month.
Who supplies the litter bags and picks up
the filled bags?
MoDOT does. We also supply safety vests, caution flags,
safety video, safety brochures, and safety tips for working
What about beautification?
MoDOT requires three copies of a detailed plan outlining
the areas where planting is to be done including the types
of plants. MoDOT personnel review the plan to determine
if it will enhance the roadside appearance while not creating
a safety hazard.
How long does my agreement last?
Adopters sign a three year commitment to the program.
However, the agreement can be terminated at any time.
Each location is reviewed periodically to ensure both
parties are fulfilling their agreement.
Are there guidelines I need to follow?
The Missouri Department of Transportation has established
rules and regulations for
the program to ensure safety and consistency in its operation.
All adopters are expected to know and abide by these standards.
Help, I've inherited our group's AAH project.
