Adopt-a-Street Program

People Picking Up Trash 2

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. Program participants make a 2-year commitment to collect litter along selected streets 4 times per year. Clean Valley Council (CVC) supplies trash bags and safety vests. The City of Roanoke recog­nizes the participants’ commitment and concern for the environment with professional signage at each end of their designated area.

To participate, call 540-345-5523, or email

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. 

Clean Streets = Clean Streams!
