Adopt a Street Program
We work with community members to keep our roadsides litter-free, through our Adopt a Street program.
How the program works
When you adopt a street, you agree to pick up litter on that street at least once a month (or as needed). You also agree to report vandalism and graffiti to the program coordinator.
We give volunteers litter collection kits, which include:
- garbage tongs
- kitchen tongs for children
- high visibility vests
- disposable gloves
We also arrange pick-ups if you collect large amounts of garbage.
This is a great opportunity for community associations, local businesses, schools, sports teams, individuals, and families to make a difference in our local community. You can even challenge and inspire other groups or neighbours to see who can keep the cleanest street.
When you adopt a street, you can:
- build a stronger sense of community in your neighbourhood
- get to know your neighbours
- improve your street
- reduce litter, vandalism, and crime in your area
