Are you looking for a way to give back to the community while also helping to keep Brighton beautiful? The city’s Streets & Fleet department is currently accepting applications for its Adopt-a-Street program. The Adopt-a-Street program is a litter-reduction campaign designed to remove trash and debris from city streets and improve the quality of our environment. The program offers individuals, groups and businesses the opportunity to demonstrate their desire for a cleaner community by taking an active role in which they help beautify and keep our streets litter free.
The City has pre-selected a number of streets within our city limits that represent our highest litter areas. By volunteering to Adopt-A-Street, individuals or organizations agree to remove litter from a minimum of one mile of roadway, six times a year, for at least a one-year period. The city will provide volunteers with safety training, trash bags, and safety vests at no cost. Additionally, the city will haul away the bagged litter and all heavy debris or hazardous objects. Adopted streets will also have a sign installed recognizing the individual or group that has adopted the street.
Those interested in helping keep Brighton clean, may request an application by calling our Streets & Fleet department at 303-655-2034 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
