Volunteer Group Litter Clean-up Details

The Department of Transportation (UDOT) will provide litter bags, collect the bags you fill and also provide safety instructions. The group must acknowledge the hazardous nature of the work and agree to assume full responsibility in the event of an accident or other incident involving death or injury to members of the group or others, along with property damage that results from negligence or intentional conduct on the part of any member of the group by signing a waiver. UDOT considers Group members to be covered under the Volunteer Government Workers Act (Utah Code 67-20)

The Group Agrees to:
  • Sign Volunteer liability waiver for the activity.
  • Pick up litter during daylight hours
  • Coordinate efforts with the UDOT regional representative at least two weeks prior to the arranged date and time for litter clean-up.
  • Obtain the required supplies for litter clean-up from UDOT during regular business hours. Unused supplies shall be returned to UDOT within one week after the litter clean-up date

  • Adult supervision is required for groups which include minor children (age 14-17)
  • Each Group must obtain parental consent for each minor child volunteer. At least two adults should be present at all times while minor children are working
  • Conduct a safety meeting for all Group volunteers/participants prior to any litter clean-up activities
  • Provide additional documentation of the Group name upon request

Sponsor A Highway

UDOT has the Sponser A Highway Program as a way for private businesses to contract with certified vendor to clean up portions of highways.

The Sponsor a Highway Program is a no-cost to the state contract that allows private companies to sponsor a Contractor to maintain segments of eligible roadway. The Contractor will install a standard sign along each sponsored roadway segment with the corresponding sponsor’s logo attached to the sign.
