Is your group ready to improve the environment?

The Adopt-A-Road program gives concerned individuals the opportunity to help their local community environment by collecting litter and beautifying streets in their neighborhood. This countywide program allows the “You’re the Solution to Litter Pollution” motto to spark awareness amongst citizens of all ages.

Adopt-A-Road (AAR) is a litter reduction and prevention program. Highly motivated, environmentally conscious individuals work tirelessly to ensure that DeKalb County is clean and well trimmed thereby upholding its reputation as one the nation’s “Best Nature Friendly Places to Live”.

Volunteer groups are given the opportunity to organize their own cleanups within their communities.  Keep DeKalb Beautiful supplies trash bags, gloves, pick-up sticks and vests to assist them with cleanups.  In return for usage of supplies, KDB requires Adopt A Road groups and volunteer cleanups to submit a Clean Up Report form after each event!
