Community Anti-Litter Opportunities

  1. Adopt-a-Spot
  2. Community Cleanups
  3. Take Care of Your Square

Adopt-a-Spot Program

KCB team is looking for volunteers for their Adopt-A-Spot program. Organizations, businesses, individuals and volunteer groups are responsible for keeping certain areas litter-free. A spot may be a park, school grounds, libraries, parking lots, vacant lots, walkways, entry ways or any secured area. 

You can make a difference by taking ownership of just a small piece of Chesterfield County as your adopted spot. In 2022, Adopt-A-Spot volunteers contributed over 380 hours picking up over 4 tons of litter and debris across Chesterfield.

The county will provide garbage bags and reflective vests as needed. Help keep our community litter-free and adopt a spot today!

If you are interested in attending any of our volunteer opportunities, please contact Calvin Vonada or call 804-717-6136.

Court-Mandated and Inmate Anti-Litter Programs

  1. Assign-a-Highway
  2. Sheriff's Inmate Workforce

Assign-a-Highway Program

Individuals who require Circuit Court-mandated community service hours can participate in the Assign-A-Highway program, where a community service volunteer is assigned a designated area to pick up litter in Chesterfield County. Once the litter cleanup is complete, the KCB team checks the volunteer's work and documents the community services hours. In 2022, Assign-A-Highway participants completed over 5,900 community service hours and collected over 148 thousand pounds of litter and debris. There were 113 graduates from the Assign-A-Highway program in 2022.
