The Adopt-A-Street program started in 1995 as a volunteer litter control project. Four times a year, street sponsors are asked to clean their designated street. The exact date of clean up is flexible and reminders are typically sent in the Spring and Fall months.
Once your group has adopted a street, clean up consists of policing your sidewalk and edge of the street, but not out in the street where traffic puts the safety of volunteers at risk. Safety vests and garbage collection bags are available at our office.
Adopt-A-Street signage is available for designated routes that are over a mile in length. These signs are only placed after a group shows consistency in patrolling their street section, usually after one year.
If you are a part of a group that is interested in adopting a street for routine clean up, please contact the Adopt-A-Street Coordinator or call 208-746-1316.
If you are not able to adopt a street at this time but would still like to volunteer to clean up around the City, safety vests and bags can be provided as needed. Please contact the Adopt-A-Street Coordinator or call 208-746-1316 to learn more.
Thank you for choosing to help keep Lewiston litter-free!
