The City's Adopt-A-Street program is a volunteer-driven cleanup campaign that enables neighbors and organizations to take a hands-on role in making Fort Lauderdale litter free. Adopting a street and cleaning it not only makes people feel good, it has multiple social, environmental, public health, and economic benefits because it:

  • Creates awareness for litter prevention
  • Promotes community building
  • Prevents storm water pollution
  • Offers exercise with a purpose
  • Enhances tourism
  • Elevates property values
  • Keeps waterways and streets safer and cleaner
  • Makes Fort Lauderdale beautiful

It's really easy to participate in the Adopt-A-Street Program. Simply select a City street (minimum one mile), complete an application, and clean the street at least four times a year. The City will install a program sign on the adopted street identifying you or your organization, provide the clean up supplies, and remove the trash once the cleanup is complete. 

We invite you to join our Adopt-A-Street Ambassadors by adopting your favorite Fort Lauderdale street. It does not take a lot of time to participate and the rewards are tremendous.

How many miles of streets are currently adopted?
Approximately 32 miles of City streets are currently adopted thanks to many organizations and individuals. But, with a city the size of Fort Lauderdale, many more street adoptions are needed to achieve the goal of having a litter-free Fort Lauderdale. 

How can my group sign up to Adopt-A-Street?1
Review the Adopt-A-Street Program Guidelines pdf then complete the Adopt-A-Street Program Online Application, and submit it to the City of Fort Lauderdale.

Who do I contact if I need more information?
You may contact the City’s Neighbor Support Office at (954) 828-6653 or email

Storm drains transport water to the Fort Lauderdale's waterways. You can help protect the City's waterways by reporting report clogged storm drains or illegal dumping into the stormwater system to the 24-hour Neighbor Service Center at (954) 828-8000.

Did you know that state law prohibits dumping anything into the storm drain system or unauthorized obstructions or alterations of the drainage features?
