Thank you for your interest in the Adopt-A-City Street Program, you are joining other community groups, businesses, and individuals to help reduce litter in Salisbury, making a major contribution towards the city’s overall appearance. Litter clean-up costs the U.S. more than 11.5 billion each year!

  • Trash blowing out of truck beds and tipped roll out bins cause a large percent of litter in our neighborhoods.
  • Litter decreases property values, diminishes community appearance and promotes even more litter.
  • Even food waste has a cost. It attracts rodents to the side of the road. The rodents then attract raptors like hawks and owls. The raptors are then hit by cars.

The purpose of the Adopt-a-City Street Program is to:

  • Tangibly demonstrate civic pride in your community
  • Contribute to a cleaner and healthier environment
  • Contribute to our overall economic development
  • Serve as an impressive reminder to the public not to litter the roadways or ignore our environment

Program Highlights:

  • Applicants are limited to one street adoption at a time for the first year
  • Only city maintained streets can be adopted, to learn about state road adoption please visit https://www.ncdot.gov/initiatives-policies/environmental/adoptahighway/Pages/default.aspx
  • A minimum of three (3) clean ups are required/year for a two year commitment
  • Volunteers receive two signs along their adopted route
  • Volunteers must submit a cleanup report for each clean up
  • Volunteers are asked to remove illegal signs along the roadway during the clean up
  • Additional opportunities include storm drain marking and graffiti spotting
  • The City of Salisbury provides bags, safety vests and litter sticks
