Volunteers looking for a more regular service commitment can participate in our Adopt-a-Spot program. We are currently recruiting volunteers to adopt locations in 2023. Your family or group can adopt a park, trail segment, stream, street, neighborhood, or corridor. Join the program before April 1st to secure your spot!
Volunteers and groups that adopt a spot are provided with litter cleanup supplies and asked to do the following:
- Agree to an adoption commitment from March to October
- Perform a litter cleanup at least once a month
- Submit an online reporting form to Keep Omaha Beautiful after each cleanup
- Act as the eyes of the location, keeping an eye out for graffiti, illegal dumping, etc.
Additional activities can include sweeping sidewalks and parking lots, raking leaves, picking up branches, and reporting broken equipment or tables.

Contribute to our Litter Data Collection Project
In addition to tracking the number of bags collected, Keep Omaha Beautiful will be tracking specific litter data with information provided by volunteers through an easy-to-use app called Clean Swell. Made by our partners at Ocean Conservancy, Clean Swell allows volunteers to track what they're picking up. Keep Omaha Beautiful plans to use this data to be able to see a trash analysis on a city-wide scale.
