Adopt your favorite spot today!

If you have ever looked out your window or taken a walk outside and been frustrated by the amount of litter lying around, consider adopting a spot near your home or business today to help create a cleaner and more vibrant community. 

The Adopt-A-Spot program is an easy way to make a noticeable difference in your community. If you are an individual, community group, business, or school you can adopt a spot near you by volunteering a few hours in the year to create a better environment.

We will provide free resources and tools to help and you will receive an adoption certificate to proudly display your care for the community. Cleanup supplies like safety vests, gloves, and litter grabbers can be borrowed from KDWB if enough notice is given. Trash bags are also available thanks to a generous sponsorship by GLAD through Keep America Beautiful.

Our first groups to commit to four cleanups a year in the Adopt-A-Spot program will receive a coupon valid for a free box of a dozen original glazed doughnuts though a sponsorship supported by Krispy Kreme. All Adopt-A-Spot participants will be recognized on our website as well as our social media outlets @keepdaltonwhitfieldbeautiful.
