How does Adopt-A-Street Work?
The City works with groups or organizations to select a street; residential streets are not eligible for this program. Groups must agree to a minimum program commitment of two years and to pick up at least twice per year.

The Adopt-A-Street permit must be signed by a group representative and returned to the program coordinator for approval. The group representative is responsible for reviewing safety information with program participants before every pick up.

  • Participants must be 12 years of age or older.
  • Participants 18 years of age or younger must have adequate supervision.
  • Groups shall arrange pick-up dates in advance with program coordinator. Certain pick-up dates may not be allowed on or near holidays.
  • The groups shall leave trash bags along the roadside as specified by the program coordinator. Recycling is encouraged for the group's benefit.

The City will:

  • Provide trash bags
  • Provide safety information
  • Provide class-2 safety vests
  • Remove trash bags and large, heavy or hazardous items from pick-up area
