You can help keep our streets clean and litter free by joining the Adopt-a-Street program. Adopting groups take care of roads and surrounding public spaces throughout Austin, picking up trash along their adopted street segment. Participating in Adopt-a-Street is a great way to show your civic pride, engage with colleagues and friends, and build community ties.

We only process applications two times a year. Applications submitted between January 1 and June 30 are reviewed in July, and adopter plaques are installed August-September.

Applications submitted between July 1 and December 31 are reviewed in January, and adopter plaques are installed in February-March.

Adopt-a-Street partners make a commitment to:

  • Adopt at least 1/2 a mile within the City of Austin for one year
  • Host 2 – 4 cleanups a year along the adopted segment
  • Submit reports about each cleanup
  • Pay the fees for their Adopt-a-Street sign

Adopting groups receive free cleanup supplies, project guidance, and trash collection from Keep Austin Beautiful.

Individuals are not eligible to adopt a street segment. Annual adoption fees are based on the type of organization adopting:

  • $250 – community groups
  • $500 – small businesses (fewer than 100 employees)
  • $1,000 – large businesses (100 or more employees)

If you have any questions, please email us.
