City Takes on Adopt-A-Road Program 
The City of Knoxville, in partnership with Keep Knoxville Beautiful (KKB), has a new
program to help communities make Knoxville a cleaner, more vibrant place to live.

The Adopt-A-Road program is a litter reduction campaign designed to remove debris
from local roads and improve environmental quality. With the help of community
volunteers, the City and KKB will provide guidance and equipment to foster safe,
effective cleanups along designated neighborhood roads.

Community members have the opportunity to adopt roads in their neighborhood, free of
charge. It is up to members to host clean ups, but KKB will provide bags, gloves, signs,
work vests, and trash pickers to all participating members. Additionally, City
maintenance crews will pick up and dispose of all collected trash.

Members are required to host two cleanups per year with a three year commitment, and
report the number of bags, number of volunteers, and number of hours spent, for each
cleanup. For their effort, Adopt-A-Road neighborhoods will receive two, free, permanent
signs, acknowledging who is caring for the road.

If you are interested in starting an Adopt-A-Road program in your neighborhood, please
fill out the form on the KKB website.
