Adopt-A-Street Program

Adopt-a-Street Web Banner_w500px

The City's Adopt-A-Street program is a volunteer-driven cleanup campaign that enables neighbors and organizations to take a hands-on role in making Fort Lauderdale litter free. Adopting a street and cleaning it not only makes people feel good, it has multiple social, environmental, public health, and economic benefits because it:

  • Creates awareness for litter prevention
  • Promotes community building
  • Prevents stormwater pollution
  • Offers exercise with a purpose
  • Enhances tourism
  • Elevates property values
  • Keeps waterways and streets safer and cleaner
  • Makes Fort Lauderdale beautiful

It's really easy to participate in the Adopt-A-Street Program. Simply select a City street (minimum one mile), complete an application, and clean the street at least four times a year. The City will install a program sign on the adopted street identifying you or your organization, provide the clean up supplies, and remove the trash once the cleanup is complete. 

We invite you to join our Adopt-A-Street Ambassadors by adopting your favorite Fort Lauderdale street. It does not take a lot of time to participate and the rewards are tremendous.
