What is Adopt-A-Street?

Adopt-A-Street is a program that empowers volunteer groups to keep their neighborhoods litter-free one street at a time. To date, more than 18,000 volunteers from 20 cities have removed over 200,000 pounds of litter from adopted streets!

How does participation benefit neighborhoods?

Increases property values
Reduces litter-removal costs
Fosters pride (people litter less in clean neighborhoods)
Frees up maintenance crews to perform other tasks

What's involved in Adopt-A-Street participation?

Residents volunteer to remove litter from an adopted street in their city four times a year for two years. (Streets are half-a-mile long or more.) Broward County provides organizational help, cleanup supplies, free disposal, and Adopt-A-Street signs displaying the name of the group. A Group Leader coordinates cleanups between the group and Keep Broward Beautiful. Adopt-A-Street is a collaboration between Broward County, participating cities and volunteer groups.

The Adopt-A-Street program is available in the following Participating Cities:   

Dania Beach
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
Lauderdale Lakes
Tamarac
Unincorporated Broward County
Wilton Manors

If your city is not listed and you have questions about program participation, please contact your Public Works Department directly.
