Adopt-a-Street

Aquatic ecosystems-streams, rivers, wetlands, and estuaries-are under considerable pressure from human activities, including incorrect disposal of trash. Preserving and restoring the quality of freshwater and marine environments requires that we are understand how much trash we create, what we do with that trash, and how we can prevent it from entering our waterways.

The City of Goodlettsville’s Adopt-a-Street program provides a way to show pride in our community and is a great and inexpensive project that generates publicity and recognition for your group. The program allows interested groups an opportunity to clean a specific area of a street’s right-of-way.

Volunteers are asked to conduct four clean-ups a year alongside the adopted route with the City providing clean-up materials and disposal. After your first clean-up, your group’s name is placed on the City of Goodlettsville’s Adopt-a-Street signage which will be placed on your adopted route. Recommended roadway coverage will be about a 1/2 mile in length and cover both sides of the road. 

In 2019/2020, 1220 lbs of trash was removed from Goodlettsville streets.
