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 19,000 volunteers from 20 cities have removed over 211,000 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 one year. (Streets are half-a-mile long or more.) Broward County provides organizational help, cleanup supplies, free disposal and recognition 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 Cities:
- Broward Municipal Services District (Unincorporated Broward)
- Dania Beach
- Lazy Lake
- Pembroke Park
- Wilton Manors
