The Nova Scotia Adopt-A-Highway program gives volunteer groups the opportunity to help their communities by collecting litter and beautifying roadsides and interchange areas.

Adopt A Highway Nova Scotia: St. James antigonish group

In Nova Scotia, the program was started in 1997 with an initial 18 volunteer groups. Today, we have over 170 groups who have adopted more than 1000 kilometers of secondary road and eighteen 100-Series highway Interchange areas (Exits) throughout the province. On average, 5-6 thousand bags of garbage and recyclable materials are picked up along adopted Nova Scotia highways each year.
