Groups must provide their own gloves, trash bags, brooms, rakes, etc. and do basic light cleanup such as: picking up litter, sweeping up cigarette butts or other debris, pulling or cutting weeds, raking leaves or other general cleanup work needed along sidewalks, curbs, gutters, planted areas and parking lots in the adopted area. Click here for the Adopt-A-Block flyer with registration form, a list of adoptable areas and more details. Groups are encouraged to register by May 31 to reserve their desired cleanup area.
