Keep Pittsburg Beautiful By Adopting A Street!

Take an active role to keep your city clean.  The City of Pittsburg’s Adopt-A-Street Program is based on the State Highway Department’s Adopt-A-Highway Program.

This program is a volunteer program that provides a partnership between the City and individuals, community groups, business owners, schools, churches and service clubs to promote community services in an effort to make our City streets litter free.

What’s Involved?

Each volunteer (adopting group) assumes responsibility for an assigned section of street and agrees to remove litter and trash four (4) times per year between the months of March and November for at least a two year period.

Contact us each time you have picked up litter along your adopted street segment.

Volunteers who adopt a street will receive recognition with a sign being posted along the street informing the public of the organization assisting with the pick-up.
