Keep Durham Beautiful’s Street Adoption program provides an opportunity for individuals and groups to take active ownership of streets in their neighborhood or community.

What you do

Pick up litter along your route (one-mile minimum, except for Downtown) at LEAST twice a month and fill out a report for us about what you did and when.

What we do

We give you safety vests, litter grabbers, and gloves.  We put up a sign with your name or the name of your group.

What we all get

Pride in our community by making a commitment to appearance.  Take the first step to a more beautiful Durham!
