The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Sponsor-A-Highway Program provides businesses, organizations and individuals the opportunity to sponsor litter removal on North Carolina roadsides while also advertising their company name.

This public-private partnership includes service providers that are responsible for marketing, securing sponsors, installing and maintaining signs and removing and disposing of litter using their own crews.

In return for contracting with one of the service providers to clean a one-mile segment of roadway, an acknowledgement panel identifying the sponsor is attached to a Sponsor-A-Highway Program sign.

Sponsorship Process

Based on technical proposals, NCDOT has selected the two providers listed below to perform this work. Each uses their own trained staff to perform this service.

Sponsor-A-Highway Segments

Available segments are shown on NCDOT’s litter management map. Potential sponsors who have identified a segment should record the mile hatch marks or beginning and end points using the map to locate the segment.

All information shown on the litter management map is subject to change at any time without notice. As such, the reader of this information is cautioned as to the accuracy and any errors or omissions contained.
