Adopt-A-Street Challenge to Civic Groups

The City of Grants Pass would like to challenge all of our fine civic groups and families to adopt a section of City street and to hold quarterly events to pick up debris. Show your civic pride, keep your city streets clean, and remember to take pictures of your event so we can post them on our website.

About the Adopt-A-Street Program

This Public Works Program gives citizens the opportunity to take ownership of a street of their choice (as long as it is a City street), organize regular litter pickups and contribute to a cleaner, healthier Grants Pass.

Picking up refuse along our City streets will keep it out of the stormwater system, creeks, and rivers ensuring our waterways are maintained at an optimum level.

  • Adopt-A-Street members participate in cleanup efforts at their adopted sites at least quarterly (four times a year).
  • Cleanups are scheduled by each group/individual at their convenience.
  • In exchange for a two year commitment of organizing litter pickups, a customized sign will be installed at each end of your adopted street to announce the name of your group and to honor your community service.

The City of Grants Pass will supply some safety vests, trash bags, and safety guidelines for the participants.
