Post Adopt A Highway

I need to know this because it's killing me. How much does it cost to adopt a highway? Everywhere I go, I see a frat or soror's letters on highways lately.

It is a volunteer program, it doesn't cost you anything as far as I know.

We don't pay anything to adopt a highway. The local gov't provides you with safety vests, gloves and trash bags. You pick up the trash, and you leave it at a specified point on the highway, where someone comes to get it in the bags.

Easy as pie And you get a highway sign!

This is really cool. I am going to look into it. If the chapter doesn't want to do it, I'll just get a highway all for myself I am remembering that Seinfeld episode where Kramer adopts a highway and decides to paint over the white lane lines and make it all into one luxury lane...

It's been a while since I participated in Adopt A Highway, but I don't think we paid anything to become involved. The city provided us with the safety vests and the trash bags, as well as the permanent Adopt-A-Highway sign with Delta Zeta's name on it. All we were required to do was clean the highway at least once a quarter in order for the sign to remain up.
