Adopt-A-Street Program

Print
Share

As a part of the City of Roanoke's “Clean and Green” initiative, civic and community groups, business organizations, and even families have joined the “Adopt-A-Street” Program to help reduce litter along the roadways, and make a major contribution towards the city’s overall appearance and beautification efforts.

“Adopt-A-Street” participants tangibly demonstrate civic pride for their communities by contributing to a cleaner and healthier environment, and also contribute to our overall economic development. The activity of volunteers picking up litter and the signs also serve as impressive reminders to the public not to litter the roadways or ignore the environment.

The “Adopt-A-Street” Program allows participants to make a two-(2) year commitment to collect litter along selected streets four (4) times a year. The City of Roanoke recognizes the participants’ commitment and concern for the environment with professional signage at each end of their designated area which identifies the group responsible for the clean-up of that particular roadway.

The City provides 33-gallon orange trash bags and the use of High-Visibility Safety Vests.

Organizations interested in the “Adopt-A-Street” Program may become involved by contacting the City of Roanoke Transportation Division or the Municipal Volunteer Program (MVP), and begin by completing an “Adopt-A-Street” permit form. This permit allows the group members to pick up litter within the right-of-way of their designated area.

For more information please contact the Municipal Volunteer Coordinator at mvp@roanokeva.gov or (540) 853-1801.
