Green Up Ashland's “Adopt-A-Street” program is a volunteer-driven clean up program to help address the community concerns of littering and cleaner streets. This program includes support from the Ashland Department of Public Works to collect litter and clean up sections of unincorporated area roadways. The Adopt-A-Street program provides business and residents with an opportunity to do something positive for the community - with cleaner streets and neighborhoods, increased neighborhood pride and property value.
