Lakeland asks you to Adopt-a-Street

Lakeland would like more volunteers for its Adopt-A-Street Program and encourages families to sign up.

Rhonda Fink, community service representative for Lakeland, said the City needs more volunteers for the program.  “Families might enjoy some together time and help the community at the same time,” she said.

The litter collection program was started in 2012 by a resolution of the Board of Commissioners and was tailored to a program created by the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT).

Some specifics of the program:

  • The Adopt-A-Street group would be required to conduct a cleanup at least four times a year, specifically once during each season.
  • After one cleanup, the City will install a sign with the group name displayed along the corridor or area.
  • The group is responsible for acquiring all of the volunteers not less than 12–years-old and insuring all volunteers sign a release of liability.

The City will furnish and provide all safety gear and safety training instructions and pick up the bags of litter.
