Adopt-A-Spot

Adopt-A-Spot

Adopt-A-Spot Program volunteers help keep our city clean and beautiful. Volunteers clean an adopted spot at least two times a year for two years, and in return, receive city-wide recognition for their efforts. In addition, volunteers have access to cleanup equipment and supplies and  you can report your cleanup results online.

Each of us needs to be conscientious about not creating litter. Unfortunately, when some of us are not careful, then we all need to pick up the dropped "ball." That's what the Adopt-A-Spot Program is all about - picking up the litter dropped by other people.

It doesn't sound like fun, but amazingly enough, it is. And keeping your "spot" clean is one of the most rewarding volunteer activities in which you can participate. When you look back over the area you cleaned in the previous hour or two, you will feel a deep sense of satisfaction and pride.

Not only will you feel good, but research by Keep America Beautiful Inc. (KAB) shows that regularly cleaning areas helps reduce the amount of litter that is dropped on the site. According to KAB, litter tends to accumulate where people feel no sense of ownership, when they think other people will pick up after them, and when litter has already accumulated.
