The adopt a street scheme is accessible to volunteers across the District including local schools, community groups and businesses as well as local residents. Anyone committed to actively tackling litter can take part.

Adopt-a-Street encourages local people to volunteer, get involved and actively care for their local environment and encourages a sense of civic pride. 

Volunteering for this scheme will complement and enhance the Councils ongoing cleansing and grounds maintenance.

You might want to adopt your own street, part of a street, a park or a path your regularly use.

How It Works

  1. You choose the area you want to "adopt" and when you want to volunteer and complete our online registration form.
  2. We will contact you and help you by providing a litter picking stick, tabard and basic written health and safety guidance.
  3. You can either dispose of the litter in your own domestic grey bin or for larger quantities we can arrange to collect it.

Residents or groups interested in joining the Adopt-a-Street scheme should complete the on-line registration form on this page
