Volunteers Needed: Don't Pass It Up, Pick It Up!


Make a lasting impression by adopting an area needing attention. Volunteer groups can have their name on signs posted in the adopted area to recognize their regular efforts in keeping their neighborhood clean.

Program Basics

  • KMCB Adopt an Area program is designed to ensure that major corridors and main neighborhood arteries of our cities remain litter-free.
  • Groups, businesses, churches, schools, families or individuals may adopt an area.
  • Groups adopting a portion of a major corridor commit to cleaning the artery at least 3 times per year.
  • KMCB supplies groups with trash bags, gloves, and tools (on loan) to assist cleaning efforts at no cost.
  • After the second cleanup, KMCB will work with the local municipality to install an Adopt-An-Area sign acknowledging the group adopting the area.

Benefits of Adoption
