The Adopt-A-Spot program is a community-based program developed by Keep Princeton Beautiful and the City of Princeton. It gives individuals and groups a public way to show pride in the community and to help keep it litter-free. Anyone may participate by volunteering to adopt a spot in Princeton by pledging to maintain it for one year or longer and by agreeing to maintain the spots six times within the year and send reports to Public Works. The program is free and open to all citizens.
What can be adopted: Any spot within the city limits of Princeton that is not currently being maintained may be adopted, with special attention to those places that appear neglected. A vacant lot, city medians, and city parks are possible candidates. TxDot roadways such as 380, FM 75, and 6th Street are not available to be adopted through this program.
Some spots may require litter pick up to be maintained, and others may require weeding and/or grass maintenance, as well as litter, pick up. Our Adopt-A-Spot coordinator can help you choose a location that best suits you and your group. Email Mary Abercrombie or contact her at 972-734-5331.
The Waiver of Liability for City Volunteers must be completed by every individual participating and can be completed online. Once signed up it is important you report your results up to three days after each event.
You can use the Trash Free Texas Interactive Map or send an inquiry with the specific location in mind.
