    Litter Control: Love Where You Live

    Each April, the City of Lynchburg in partnership with Keep Lynchburg Beautiful hosts an annual spring cleanup, Love Where You Live. Citizens and volunteer groups are encouraged to meet at one central location in the city where they will be given cleanup supplies, a location or two to clean and refreshments. The cleanup begins at 9:00 a.m. and is usually completed by 12 noon. All trash collected is placed on the street curb for City collection crews to pickup. In addition to the community wide cleanup, Parks & Recreation also holds the Clean Your Block Party at local community centers. The Clean Your Block Party starts at 10AM and ends at 2PM at participating centers.

    The 2020 Love Where You Live cleanup event is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. Check back in March 2020 for the latest information.

    Thank you to everyone who participate with the 2019 Love Where You Live, Clean Your Block Party and Lynchburg Community Care Collaborative!

    Adopt-A-Street

    Lynchburg's Adopt-A-Street program began in 1991. Today, more than 80 locations across the city are adopted by volunteers who do at least four clean-ups per year at their designated location. A half-mile minimum is required to adopt a street. The City provides trash bags, litter grabbers and safety vests, and then collects the filled bags. In addition, an Adopt-A-Street road sign with the individual’s or organization’s name will be placed on the adopted street. For more information please call (434) 455-6087.
