  • The signs are secured to 8ft (4×4) posts with bolts/nuts.
  • The posts are set 2 ½ft – 3ft deep into the ground.

When a spot is adopted through the program, KPWB provides all of the materials needed to clean the spot. All supplies can be picked up at our office, 4391 Ridgewood Center Dr, Suite F, Woodbridge, VA 22192.

After the adoption is finalized and the second cleanup requirement is met, a sign is installed at the spot featuring the volunteer’s name.

Adopt-a-Spot Toolkit Includes: Gloves, Litter Pickers, Trash Bags, Level 3 Safety Vests, Personalized Sign, Litter Education, and Safety Training

According to Keep America Beautiful, the presence of litter can decrease property value by 7% and increase crime. Adopt-a-Spots help ensure that communities stay clean, remain safe, and inspire people to be environmental stewards. Data collected from cleanups is analyzed and reported to the county, state, and additional environmental data systems and is used to enforce county policy to ensure areas STAY clean.
