Adopt-a-Street Program

The City of North Port Adopt-a-Street program provides an opportunity for volunteers to cleanup City streets. Individuals, clubs and organizations can make an invaluable difference in the community and enhance the overall appearance of the City by adopting a segment of street(s) and picking up litter a minimum of four times a year.

Public Works will provide:

  • Trash bags
  • Gloves
  • Litter grabbers
  • Safety vests
  • Collection of bagged trash

The Adopt-a-Street Coordinator will document the accomplishments of each organization which are ultimately incorporated in the local and national Keep America Beautiful reporting. Public Works staff will install a personalized appreciation sign on the adopted street if the organization or individual completes four cleanups per year. All Adopt a Street volunteers will be recognized at an annual volunteer awards ceremony conducted by the Keep Sarasota County Beautiful organization.

Great American Cleanup

The City of North Port is excited to host the Great American Cleanup every spring! City employees along with local residents join forces to help keep our community beautiful!

The Great American Cleanup engages more than 5 million volunteers and participants, on average, every year to create a positive and lasting impact. It is the country's largest community improvement program that kicks off in more than 20,000 communities each spring. This year's Great American Cleanup in North Port will focus along City roadways. 

The Great American Cleanup is part of Keep Sarasota County Beautiful (KSCB), a county-wide beautification program that initiates community cleanup projects to help keep our community free of debris. The organization is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful Inc., a national, non-profit, public education organization dedicated to improving waste handling practices in American communities. Locally, our mission is “to enhance and promote public interest and participation in the general improvement of the environment throughout Sarasota County” which is done through education, cleanup programs, recycling and other methods of reducing solid waste.

If you or someone you know would like to help out by volunteering for the Great American Cleanup, please contact the Department of Public Works at 941-240-8050.
