Lend a Hand and Adopt-a-Spot in Denver

Denver’s Adopt-a-Spot program is a great resource for residents that are motivated to help keep Denver a clean and safe place to live and play. The program is free, and perfect for groups of all sizes and participants of all ages.Groups ranging from organized civic groups, to families, to schools are encouraged to Adopt-a-Spot in Denver and commit to maintaining this spot for a year (or more!).

Adopting a spot is not only impactful, but also rewarding. Here’s what the commitment entails:

  • Maintaining a stretch of road, alley or open area (public right-of-way) for one year.
  • Providing the person-power to pick up litter, remove illegal signs and report graffiti vandalism.
  • Notifying the Keep Denver Beautiful program staff of planned cleanup dates so that supplies can be provided, and trash removal can be scheduled.

Adopt-a-Spot volunteers clean up their spot in downtown Denver.

Denver’s Keep Denver Beautiful program staff is here to help you with your commitment and can provide organizational help, safety and procedure training, supplies such as bags, safety vests, work gloves and tools (as needed), and trash pick-up after each cleanup. Your group will also receive a customized sign to advertise your commitment.

If your school group, business, church, family, or another group wants to commit to adopting a spot, more information can be found online at DenverGov.org/KDB  or by calling 311.
