For the duration of the COVID-19 emergency, we are directing all Adopt-A-Street organizations and volunteers to suspend roadside cleanup activities until further notice. We greatly value your participation in the Adopt-A-Street program and appreciate your cooperation during this public health crisis. This temporary suspension in cleanup activities will continually be evaluated, and program cleanup requirements will be adjusted accordingly. Program updates will be sent out via email and posted online on this webpage.
Gainesville's Adopt-A-Street Program
The City of Gainesville voluntary Adopt-A-Street Program was formed to help address the problem of roadside litter in our city. Any company, organization, group or citizen in Gainesville can apply to adopt up to a two-mile section of a city street. Each group must commit to remove litter at least six times each year, remain in the program for at least two years, and a representative of the group must attend a safety briefing.
The city has clean-up kits for loan consisting of safety vests, plastic bags, gloves, first aid kit, and litter sticks for the purpose of litter removal. After your first clean-up, a sign with the name of each Adopt-A-Street group or individual will be posted at both ends of the adopted street section.
If you would like to adopt a City street, please contact the Solid Waste Division at 352-393-7964 or email email@example.com.
