The "Love Your City" Adopt-a-Street program, sponsored by the Keep Mansfield Beautiful Commission, enhances the quality of life and pride in our city by maintaining roadways, ensuring they are clean and attractive for residents and visitors.
Mansfield is growing, and a surging population means more cars on the roadways and unfortunately, more trash. Volunteer efforts reduce litter cleanup costs and save taxpayers money. Volunteering for litter pick-up builds community and group pride, visibly improves your local environment and helps to protect waterways.
As a part of Keep Mansfield Beautiful, the Adopt-a Street program is a wonderful opportunity to teach others about citizenship, improve your community, and have a great time! The Adopt-a-Street program provides teams of all kinds: schools, businesses, families, clubs and civic organizations, the opportunity to help beautify Mansfield by volunteering to collect litter on local streets. It's an easy way for groups to help the community, prevent pollution and help keep Mansfield beautiful while receiving recognition for their work.

Here is how the program works:
What the adopting organization does:
- Each organization or business is limited to a maximum of three adopted streets.
- Each group must commit to conducting a cleanup of its adopted street a minimum of three times a year.
- The enrollment fee is $120 for the initial two-year adoption period. Renewal fees in subsequent years are $45 per year. These fees pay for signs with your group's name displayed and for cleanup supplies that are provided for each scheduled cleanup.
What Keep Mansfield Beautiful does:
- Provide supplies (trash bags, gloves, litter tongs, safety vests)
- Order and install Adopt-A-Street signs
- Provide dumpsters at the Chris W. Burkett Service Center (620 S Wisteria Street) to collect trash
- Keep track of your cleanup reports
