Happy New Year!

The Adopt A Street team hopes that you all had a wonderful holiday season and wishes you all the best for 2016! Here’s to another year creating relationships in our community and keeping our streets litter free!

2015 Overview

2015 volunteers

Beacon and Columbian Way Trash Pick Up

2015 was another great year for the Adopt A Street program. Almost 3,800 volunteers gave over 10,000 hours of their time at 252 events and collected over 2,500 bags of trash and debris. That is fantastic! We greatly appreciate everyone who gave their time and support to the many events of 2015 and hope to see you all again in 2016. Together we can keep Seattle litter free!

Our most popular months for events are May and March. Many volunteers join our program for Spring Clean during April and May, but we also have many groups that commit to our program year-round. Some groups even hold events once a week!

Spring Clean 2016

Church of God during their Worldwide Environmental Cleanup Campaign

Last year we had 1,900 volunteers participate in our Spring Clean Program during April and May. Together they contributed an incredible 5,590 hours and picked up almost 1,000 bags of trash!

2016 Spring Clean will begin on April 1, 2016 and culminate on May 31, 2016. If you are interested in participating, let us know! We are in the process of streamlining our supply delivery process, so receiving your supplies should be even easier.

Adopt a Street Satisfaction Survey

Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and Glass

In an effort to evaluate our program effectiveness and improve our services, the Adopt A Street team will be dispersing an Adopt A Street satisfaction survey. It will include questions on your experiences with the Adopt A Street team and with Adopt A Street events. We highly value your feedback and will do our best to respond to your comments or suggestions.

The survey will be online and distributed via email. If you prefer a paper copy, please let us know in advance and we can send you a hard copy. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or general concerns. Thank you in advance!
