Adopt-A-Street is back!

The City of Cornwall’s volunteer program aims to accomplish the same goals as always – collect litter, beautify City streets, sidewalks, and parks, and inspire civic pride.

To serve you better, Adopt-A-Street has changed how and where it works.

  1. The program is now based at the Cornwall Public Library, at 45 Second Street East. Volunteers can register and collect their kit at the library (kits will be available as of Monday, April 29th). The library’s hours are as follows:
    Fall/Winter: Monday to Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
    Spring/Summer: Monday to Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  2. Volunteers can now register online! Simply click here to register and read the program rules.  In-person registration is still available – visit the Cornwall Public Library to fill out the registration form.
  3. Dedicated volunteers can share photos of their efforts, report litter bags in need of collection, and let the community know how many bags they’ve collected in an effort to beautify our City. Click here to fill out the form.

“Adopt-A-Street has been making a difference in our community for several years,” said Mayor Bernadette Clement. “We can see the positive effects of volunteers on sidewalks, in parks, and by the waterfront.”
