The N.C. Department of Transportation’s (NCDOT’s) Sponsor-A-Highway (SAH) Program provides a unique means for businesses, individuals, and other organizations to participate in beautifying and environmentally enhancing North Carolina roadways by sponsoring roadside litter removal while also having the advantage of advertising their company name at the same time.
This public private partnership includes service providers that are responsible for marketing, securing sponsors, sign installation and maintenance, and litter removal and disposal using their own crews. In return for contracting with one of the service providers to clean a 1-mile segment of roadway, an acknowledgement panel identifying the sponsor is attached to the SAH Program sign.
To simplify the sponsoring process, NCDOT has selected two service providers to perform this work based on technical proposals. The two private companies are listed below. Each uses their own trained staff to perform this service. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor is encouraged to contact the service providers listed below for more information.
