Adopt-A-Spot to Keep Kent CleanAdopot A Spot Sign

As part of its ongoing Litter Reduction Campaign, the City of Kent introduces the Adopt-A-Spot Program. This is a year-round partnership between the City and neighborhood groups, businesses and residents to help reduce litter and keep Kent's public spaces clean and beautiful.  With over 320 miles of streets and sidewalks, community partners are needed to pitch-in to pick-up!

Maybe you don't want to commit to cleaning an entire mile stretch of road but simply a "spot", block, corner or area. If so, then this is the program for you!

The City will provide:

  • Gloves and high visibility vests
  • Trash bags
  • Litter grabbers
  • Refuse disposal (if needed)
  • A sign posted at or near the spot thank you, your business or your organization for keeping Kent clean.

Volunteers will commit to:

  • Being safe during cleanups
  • A two-year (or longer) commitment in the program
  • Four cleanups per year (minimum)
  • Complete the Volunteer Roster and Activity Report after each cleanup

How to Apply

The City of Kent appreciates the efforts of the community to keep spaces clean in the interest of public health and wellness.  If you would like to apply to this program please fill out an Adopt-A-Spot application
