McHenry County Adopt-A-Highway Program
The McHenry County Adopt-A-Highway Program is a volunteer effort to eliminate litter along sections of County Roads. The Adopt-A-Highway Program started in McHenry County in 1995. Our goal is to have all roads adopted. Volunteer groups adopt a one-half mile to two mile section of highway for a two year period. A minimum of four trash collections are required per year.
