The City of San Antonio works hard to keep our streets and drainage system clear of trash and pollutants. Yet litter and waste still find their way down our storm drains and into our river and creeks following rainstorms. When it comes to preventing pollution, our waterways could use an extra hand.
Consider forming an Adopt-A-Spot group and help keep City-owned rights-of-way, street medians, drainage channels, and green spaces clear from debris. You and your team of volunteers can help pick up trash and beautify the area at scheduled times during the year.
Adopt-A-Spot groups are excellent opportunities for businesses, neighborhood associations, volunteer groups, civic groups and others to make a difference in the environment together. Adopt-A-Spot groups help prevent illicitly dumped trash, clippings and other kinds of wastes from washing into our rivers and creeks.
You can use our Adopt-A-Spot Locator Map to find nearby Adopt-A-Spot sites available for trash pickup and beautification maintenance:
