Nova Scotia Adopt-A-Highway Program

The Nova Scotia Adopt a Highway Program provides organizations, volunteer groups, and businesses the opportunity to contribute to local communities and our province by removing litter from roadsides or interchanges (exit ramps). After a cleanup our province benefits in many different ways; instantly the appearance of the province improves, the environment is aided, tourism is strengthened, and wildlife’s attraction to roadways is reduced.

Litter is a real problem in Nova Scotia and we want to change that so we have made adopting a highway easy and free! Currently, the Adopt-A-Highway Program has over 170 groups who have adopted more than 1000 kilometers of secondary roads and 18 interchange areas throughout the province. With that being said, we still have a lot of roads that need adopting.

To date, the Adopt-A-Highway Program has over 170 groups who have adopted more than 1,000 kilometers of secondary roads and eighteen 100-Series Highway Interchange areas (Exits) throughout the province. On average, six thousand bags of garbage and recyclable materials are picked up along adopted Nova Scotia roadways each year.
