The Adopt-A-Street program is open to all - individuals as well as teams from schools, workplaces, community organizations, family, friends and neighbours!

Thank you for your interest in the Adopt-a-Street Program.

Show your civic pride by joining other volunteers who wish to achieve litter-free streets, sidewalks, parks, and waterfront spaces. 

Together, Adopt-A-Street volunteers create a positive milieu for everyone to enjoy. Volunteering is a healthy and rewarding activity!

The program is flexible - you can decide where and how often to pick up litter!

Volunteers may register for the program anytime between April 1st and May 15th.

Volunteers can participate for as long as they want, but typically, clean up efforts take place during the spring, summer, and fall months.


How to Sign Up

Registration opens April 1st. Please check back in spring 2023!
