Open enrollment for the Lake County Division of Transportation's Adopt-a-Highway is available until Aug. 31. Since 1993, the program has grown to 232 groups removing litter from both sides of their adopted county highway. Each group is recognized with a commemorative sign at their adopted location. LCDOT provides participants with high visibility safety vests, trash bags, and safety information. Volunteers commit to picking up trash at least twice a year. Participants must be at least 10 years old. Anyone younger than 18 years of age must have adult supervision. For information or to see a list of sections available visit or call (847) 377-7472.
