Adopt-a-Street Program



An Arlington County initiative, the Adopt-a-Street program, enables citizens, organizations and groups to take an active role in helping to keep Arlington streets clean through litter control and storm water management. ACE is just one of many organizations that have adopted streets in Arlington. You or your organization can do the same.

An Arlington County initiative, the Adopt-a-Street program ‘œis designed to support litter control and storm water management throughout Arlington, while providing residents with an opportunity to do something positive for the community by volunteering to keep our neighborhood clean.’

Adoptees are asked to:

  • Sweep the curb, gutter lines, and wheelchair accessibility ramps of the adopted street, on a quarterly basis
  • Remove litter along the adopted street, on a quarterly basis or as needed
  • Schedule a pick-up for sweeping debris to be collected by Department of Environmental Services staff
  • Update the tasks you completed of your street adopting duties, each quarter
  • Report any hazardous conditions along the adopted street.

If’  you’d like to adopt a street, simply visit’ Arlington County’s Adopt-a-Street website, to view a map of available streets and to sign up. Once you’ve adopted a street, you’ll visit the County web site to let them know that you’ve done a cleanup and report your results.
