The City of Atlanta Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Keep Atlanta Beautiful Commission are seeking volunteers to lend a hand in keeping public spaces clean. Any portion of the City’s public right-of-way, is eligible for adoption including streets, traffic islands, medians, city owned lots, and MARTA stops if available. Volunteers are required to maintain the adopted space for up to one year and complete DPW Safety Training. Adopted spaces may be renewed upon request. DPW reserves the right to approve or disapprove a location.
Adopt-a-Spot/Street Volunteers will receive:
A sign installed to identify their ownership of the adopted location
Safety vest & gloves
All program requirements are strictly enforced. Adopt-a-Spot/Street volunteers are required to notify DPW if they are unable to keep their adoption commitment. If so, the spot will become eligible for someone else to adopt.
Areas are checked regularly by Public Works staff, and volunteers will be notified if problems develop in their adopted area.
The City of Atlanta appreciates the efforts of the community to keep spaces clean in the interest of public health and wellness. For additional information, please contact the Keep Atlanta Beautiful Commission at 404.330.6240.
