Adopt-a-Road Program

You can help keep Melbourne clean and green by joining the Adopt-a-Road program. The Adopt-a-Road program provides opportunities for individuals, businesses, clubs, church groups, and other organizations to adopt one-mile or greater stretches of City-maintained roads. Volunteers can help beautify the City by cleaning both sides of the roadway at least four times per year. 

The program has three main goals:

1)   To reduce litter along Melbourne roadways, while increasing community pride.

2)   To keep our surrounding environment, including stormwater inlets, clean.

3)   To increase public awareness and demonstrate positive action about the issue of littering

How do we adopt a road?

1)   Select a road for adoption. Contact the Cityís Environmental Community Outreach (ECO) Division at (321) 608-5082 for assistance in selection of a City-maintained road that is available for adoption.

2)   Complete a litter removal agreement and review the safety guidelines and litter removal procedures.

3)   With City ECO Division staff, develop your litter clean-up schedule. Adopt-a-Road teams will receive personalized signs, installed at the beginning and ending points along the adopted roadway reflecting your groupís commitment.  

For More Information:

If you would like more information about the program, please call the ECO Division at (321) 608-5082 or send an e-mail to jthompson@melbourneflorida.org.
