Adopt - A - Spot Program

Is there a spot in your neighborhood that could look better if only someone would take the time to clean it up?  You can make a difference by taking ownership of just a small piece of Chesterfield County as your “adopted spot.”  By volunteering to remove unsightly litter, your neighborhood, civic, school or church group will be active partners in this beautification endeavor and assist the county in achieving its goal to be responsible protectors of the environment.   

Keep Chesterfield Beautiful Program, part of the Department of Community Enhancement, is looking for volunteers for the Adopt-A-Spot Program. This program allows organizations, businesses, and individuals to adopt smaller, more-secure areas, instead of busy roadways. A spot may be a park, school grounds, vacant lot, parking lot, walkway, median strip, street, or entry way. The county will provide garbage bags and reflective vests as needed.

Take pride in your community by helping to keep just one site beautiful and litter-free.

If you are interested in attending any of our Volunteer Opportunities, please contact Pam Cooper at cooperp@chesterfield.gov or call 804-751-2227.
