Volunteers looking for a more regular service commitment can participate in Keep Omaha Beautiful’s Adopt-a-Spot program.

KOB Volunteers cover adopted areas such as: streams, trails, neighborhoods, corridors, bus stops, or school and business campuses. Volunteers can be an individual or part of a group. Registration for the Adopt-a-Spot season occurs in the spring.

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.
  • Optional, additional activities can include sweeping sidewalks and parking lots, raking leaves, picking up branches, etc.

Please note: The City of Omaha’s Parks & Recreation department has a similar program for adopting park locations. Visit the Adopt-a-Park page if you are interested adopting a public park.  

Is your cleanup open to the public?
