Adopt-A-Spot volunteers help keep the Borough of Lodi clean and beautiful by pledging to clean and maintain an adopted spot at least four (4) times a year for one (1) year. In return adopters receive a Clean Communities Mini-Grant, as well as recognition throughout the year for their efforts via social and news media. The Borough's Clean Communities also has a sign or plaque placed at the adopted spot recognizing the volunteers.

Although litter removal and beautification is conducted regularly by our Public Works Department we are offering this program to give members of our community the unique opportunity to become involved and learn more about the issues regarding litter while helping to keep the Borough beautiful, clean and safe. The Borough's Clean Communities Coordinator will provide adopters with all necessary supplies and materials following successful completion of the Adopt-a-Spot application and pledge and our Public Works Department will collect the bagged litter the next business day following a clean-up.

Adopt-A-Spot is open to individuals, families, organizations, churches, etc. (Please contact out Coordinator to find out if you or your group is applicable)

Supplies are provided by our Clean Communities Coordinator and are the responsibility of the volunteers.

Volunteers are required to submit quarterly reports for record-keeping and to support the Mini-Grant issuance, while Mini-Grants are awarded to all applicable groups who successfully complete at least the four (4) required clean-ups they are not issued directly to individuals or families. Any individual or family wishing to take part in the program may choose a charity or non-profit organization and the check will be sent directly to them.
