    Love Where You Live (Litter Control)


    Lynchburg's Adopt-A-Street program began in 1991. Today, more than 80 locations across the city are adopted by volunteers who do at least four clean-ups per year at their designated location. A half-mile minimum is required to adopt a street. The City provides trash bags, litter grabbers and safety vests, and then collects the filled bags. In addition, an Adopt-A-Street road sign with the individual’s or organization’s name will be placed on the adopted street. For more information please call (434) 455-6087.

    Annual Spring Cleanup - "Love Where You Live"

    Each spring, the City of Lynchburg in partnership with Keep Lynchburg Beautiful hosts a spring cleanup. Citizens and volunteer groups are encouraged to meet at one central location in the city where they will be given cleanup supplies, a location or two to clean and refreshments. The cleanup begins at 10:00 a.m. and is usually completed by 12 noon. All trash collected is placed on the street for City collections crews to pickup. 

    For April 2018, we added neighborhood cleanups at four of our local community centers. After the litter collection, participants can looked through displays and received refreshments at the participating Centers.
