Waynesville calls for street adopters

Written by 

The Town of Waynesville is asking residents and businesses to take part in the Adopt-A-Street program. Volunteers can choose a street in town and be responsible for picking up litter on that street. For their efforts, a street sign is erected with their name, or business name, recognizing their efforts.

Gloves, vests, garbage bags and blue bags for recyclable items are furnished by the town. Adopters are asked to clean up a minimum of four times per year, but may do so weekly or monthly. Adopters must be at least 18 years old and sign a contract.

Currently, 89 streets have been adopted under the program. Individuals, groups, churches or businesses interested in participating can contact Eddie Ward at 828.356.1172.
