Adopt-A-Spot

Keep Carrollton Beautiful’s Adopt-A-Spot program provides local businesses, civic organizations and other groups the opportunity to make an impact on the cleanliness and appearance of our community. By accepting the responsibility and leadership of the adopted “spot”, the group is not only increasing awareness of litter issues and the impact of beautification efforts, but is also publicly demonstrating a positive behavior of local pride and ownership of Carrollton.

All across the country, similar litter reduction campaigns have been implemented and proven to be very successful. Some of the advantages gained are: reducing the cost of litter removal, advertising and team building, instilling community pride and awareness, beautifying, and allowing City maintenance crews to perform other needed tasks.

Adopt-A-Spot is a voluntary program to involve citizens in maintaining and beautifying Carrollton. Anyone may participate by volunteering to Adopt-A-Spot in Carrollton and pledging to maintain it for one year or longer. Any “spot” (with the exception of medians) within the city limits not currently maintained, may be adopted, with special attention to those places that appear neglected.

Follow these steps to Adopt-Your-Spot:

Select a spot appropriate to the capabilities and size of your group, either we can provide a location or where you see the greatest need or close to your physical location.
Maintain your “spot” for a minimum commitment of one year; cleaning it at least once a quarter with one cleanup date falling on the Great American Cleanup of that year
Submit periodic photos of your group with your sign to reflect your group maintaining the “spot”.

Email boardlist@kcbadmin.org with your contact information and desired location.

We look forward to joining with you to make Carrollton litter free.
