Adopt-A-Street Program Overview

The Adopt-A-Street program resembles the State of West Virginia’s Adopt-A-Highway program. However, the Adopt-A-Street program focuses on litter pickup on streets and alleyways that are maintained by the City of Charleston. The program offers volunteers an opportunity to clean up neighborhoods with teamwork and community pride in mind.
