The Ashland District of the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and Hanover County are pleased to announce a new and exciting cooperative approach to their war on litter.
Starting July 1, businesses, groups or individuals can sponsor the collection of litter along both sides of a one-mile section of highway. The focus of the program will be Hanover’s primary roads (Routes 1, 30, 33, 54, 156, 301, and 360) and major secondary roads (627).
The sponsor can select any route that is available to have the contractor collect the litter. The cost to the sponsor will be approximately $200 annually per road for three years, and the contractor will pick up the litter four times a year. VDOT will install a sign recognizing the sponsoring business, group or individual.
You are invited to join this effort to improve our environment and beautify Hanover County. An application for the new Sponsor-a-Highway program is provided here or you may visit Hanover County Department of Public Works, (804) 365-6181.
