New Sponsor-A-Highway program to fight roadside 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, 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 available at the Department of Public Works, (804) 365-6181. The address is P.O. Box 470, Hanover VA 23069.
