Adopt-A-City Street

Keep Charlotte streets litter-free. Join more than 400 active volunteer groups who clean up hundreds of miles of city streets. Neighborhoods, businesses, families, and individuals can make a difference in their community by adopting a City street through this grassroots litter removal program.

As an Adopt-a-Street volunteer you will receive:

  • Two "adoption" signs with your name installed along the adopted route
  • Clean up supplies (litter pickers, gloves & safety vests loaned for the duration of volunteer service) on a lending basis
  • Volunteers must submit a report after each clean up. Minimum of three annual cleanups required / 2-year commitment
  • Volunteers are asked to remove illegal signs along the roadway during each clean up
  • Additional opportunities include storm drain marking and graffiti spotting
