Program Mission#

The Adopt-A-Street program strives to clean up city streets and road shoulders through the work of volunteer organizations.


Adopting a street is a valuable opportunity to make a difference in the community and enhance the overall appearance of Fort Collins. Adopt-A-Street volunteers take pride in their contribution to their community and their efforts in increasing public awareness about litter control. 

Contact the City of Fort Collins Streets Department at 970-221-6615 or email to request information at We will assist in choosing a one mile section of a street that works best for you. Your group representative will receive a contract and each participant must sign a release for each clean up.

After an organization completes three clean-ups, the City Streets will install a sign crediting the adopting group at the beginning and end of the adopted street section. Signs will include the organization's group name and the City's logo, and will remain in place as long as the adoption contract is current.

We have a number of groups who participate in Adopt - A - Street including:

  • Churches
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Businesses
  • Homeowner associations
  • Scout troops
  • School groups
