The Adopt Program is a litter cleanup program that encourages individual responsibility for our environment through scheduled cleanups. This is a two year commitment where organizations, groups, businesses, families and individuals (18 years of age and older) agree to perform a minimum of one cleanup every season (four per year).
Public Works provides the equipment to assist with cleanups and collects the trash / debris upon completion. After two years, if the minimum requirements are met, the adopting group may choose to renew their agreement.
Areas eligible for adoption on City property include:
• Roads / Streets
