Adopt-A-Street

Print

Adopt-A-Street is a volunteer program that provides a partnership between the City and organized groups from schools, churches and businesses to promote community service in Olathe and help the environment.

Visit the Adopt-A-Street Map to see what streets are available for adoption.

  • Community groups adopt at least one mile of public roadway to remove hazardous materials along the roadside.  Additional service can include removing graffiti and installing storm drainage identifications.
  • Community members conduct at least four cleanup events per year for a two-year period.
  • The City provides free materials such as trash bags, safety vests and gloves.
  • The City collects trash bags along the roadway after each cleanup event.
  • The City posts signage along the roadway area to recognize the adoption group.
  • Insurance is not provided by the City.
  • Participants must have a responsible adult to organize and supervise group members to ensure a safe cleanup event environment and a clean job.
