Join Our Adoption Network…
Since 1990, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful has offered an adoption program as a way for caring individuals and groups to "adopt" local areas they care about and help to keep them clean. Our adoption program compliments PennDOT's Adopt-A-Highway program and is an option for most types of local areas, such as municipal roads, communities, parks, neighborhood blocks, greenways, waterways, and trails.
Adopting an area is a proven and effective way to address persistent dumping and littering and helps keep these areas trash-free. All it takes is a concerned person or group of volunteers and a commitment to be part of the solution in keeping Pennsylvania clean.
Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful provides up to two adoption signs per adoption. Adoption signs help to recognize the volunteer effort behind an adoption and build awareness among visitors and residents that someone cares enough about removing trash and litter to "adopt" an area.
