We encourage property owners to consider picking up trash/litter along the public way near their homes. If this is an activity that you would like to consider, please call us at (772) 871-5103 so that we can provide you with safety requirements for conducting this activity. We would also like to recognize your neighborhood efforts by registering you in our program.
Where can I pick up an Adopt-a-Street application?
An application can be picked up at the Public Works Department located at 450 SW Thornhill Dr., Port St. Lucie, FL 34984. We can also mail the application. Our phone number is (772) 871-5103.
Is there a cost to participate in the Adopt-a-Street program?
All that is needed is your time and willingness to conduct litter cleanups at least 12 times a year. Public Works will provide you with the litter tongs, trash bags, safety vest, training, and pickup service in order to dispose of the collected waste.
What do I do with the trash/litter picked up?
Once you have conducted your cleanup, you will need to complete a Litter Removal Form. There is a question on the form asking if you need to have the trash bags picked up by the city. Simply check the box when you submit the form, and pickup will be arranged.
How often will I be required to clean the street that I'm considering for adoption?
We ask that Adopt-a-Street litter cleanups be conducted at least twelve times a year. We encourage litter collection as frequently as possible.
How do I find out what streets are available for adoption?
KPSLB staff can assist you with the search and identification of an acceptable location for adoption. Call us at (772) 871-5103 for assistance.
What is required to qualify an adopted street?
It is recommended that one mile of street be considered for adoption. This helps to reduce the annual cost of manufacturing and maintaining the signs that are posted along the roadway.
