What is Keep Manassas Beautiful?
How soon after adoption will we see a Keep Manassas Beautiful Sign at my adopted location?
Your location will receive a Keep Manassas Beautiful sign with your name or the name of your group once we have received the first litter clean-up report.
Once the volunteers fill up the garbage bags, who picks them up?
If you have the ability to remove the bags and set them out with your trash, then they will be collected as part of regular service. If, however, you are unable to take the bags with you; please set them together in a easy to find spot and call (703) 257-8256. We will arrange to have them collected.
What if I only want to do a litter clean-up once or twice a year?
When an individual or group adopts a location, we ask for a commitment of a minimum 6 clean-ups per year. If your schedule does not allow for that, why not ask to join a group and help them on one of their clean-up days? It's a great way to meet your neighbors and you can still volunteer for the location that you like.
Can I adopt more than one location?
Of course! But each location will require a minimum of 6 litter clean-ups per year.
What if I don't report my activity?
Reporting your litter clean-up activity provides the documentation that proves you are keeping your adopted location litter free. The information that you provide also gives us the information that we need to keep track of how much litter is collected by volunteers in the City and helps us to identify litter problem spots, areas for program improvements and much more.
