Adopt-A-Spot is a program established by the City of Burleson through which volunteers agree to pick up litter along roadways, drainage ditches, or other public areas. The City provides trash bags, gloves and safety vests to volunteers. The volunteers must bring the litter collected to the City of Burleson for inspection and disposal. For every bag of litter collected, the volunteer earns 1 hour of community service work.
Selecting an Area to Clean
A City of Burleson representative will assist volunteers in selecting an area to clean. The City will also execute an agreement with the volunteer, set up a litter pick up schedule, and discuss safety rules with volunteers. Volunteers earn one hour of community service work for attending a safety training meeting.
Individuals participating in this program can take pride in their contributions to the community and be confident that their efforts are increasing public awareness about litter control.
Open to Volunteers
Adopt-A-Spot is open to volunteers in the City of Burleson, including court appointed volunteers. A parent or guardian must supervise volunteers who are age 18 or under when participating in any Adopt-A-Spot activity.
