Adopt-a-Program

 

Adopt-a-Program Logo Help keep the Township beautiful. Participate in Adopt-a-Program; individuals, groups, businesses, or schools can choose a street, park, trail, or creek to adopt. Commit to cleaning the litter in one area and the Township will provide cleaning supplies, safety information, garbage removal, and a recognition sign.

ADOPT-A:

  • Street (select at least one km of municipal roadway, must clean both sides of street once a month)

  • Park (select a municipal park; school grounds are not part of the Adopt-a-Program, clean up twice
    a month)  

  • Trail (clean up twice a month)

  • Creek (clean up four times a year)

Cleanup report

Thank you to the families and individuals, schools, churches, service clubs, special interest groups, and local businesses who have been/are a part of the Adopt-a-Program and help keep our streets, parks, trails, and creeks clean.
Please complete an online Cleanup Report after each cleanup (or at least once a month). Cleanup Reports let us know how much and what type of material is being collected, which helps to improve waste management programs in the Township. The reports also provide a means for you to request garbage pick up, report anything unusual, and let us know you are still active in the program.

Guide to Safe Litter Cleanup

Your safety is the number one priority. Learn more by reading our Guide to Safe Litter Cleanup before your first cleanup. Remember, do not pick up any hazardous, sharp, or heavy materials. Report the location of the materials for pick up through the online Cleanup Report.

Mowing and brushwacking map

A map  was created to help Adopt-a-Program volunteers see when boulevards and ditches along their adopted streets are scheduled for mowing or brushwacking. This can help volunteers plan their cleanups before mowing or brushwacking occurs to avoid litter being cut into smaller pieces. Active mowing areas are usually completed within 3-5 business days while active brushwacking areas are usually completed within 20-30 days.
