What You Can Do To Help Keep Your City Clean - You Can Make A Difference

Since 1987 civic-minded volunteers throughout the state have adopted thousands of miles of Colorado highways. The City of Greeley has adapted that program to our city streets. Adopting parties agree to patrol and pick up litter from both sides of a specified segment of street for a minimum of two years. The City of Greeley provides trash bags and reflective safety vests to volunteers and picks up bagged litter collected by volunteers.

Who adopts? Churches, scout groups, employee and retired employee associations, service clubs, non-profit organizations and any group that takes pride in Greeley.

All adopted sections of street are designated by a blue and white sign installed along the adopted route crediting the adopting organization.

Adopting groups can take pride in their contribution to their community and be confident that their efforts are increasing public awareness about litter control. It saves taxpayer dollars and gives adopting organizations a valuable opportunity to work together to make a difference.
