Adopt-a-Block

Adopt a block in your neighborhood.Adopt-a-Block is one of the community-based efforts to help make Wilmington a cleaner and more attractive City.

Organizations sign up to clean an area of the city at least four times a year and more often if possible. Groups work directly with the Department of Public Works on collecting debris and litter gathered during Adopt-a-Block efforts. Groups are encouraged to clean up as large an area as possible depending on the number of volunteers in their organization.

Participating organizations are recognized with the placement of a green and white Adopt-a-Block sign placed in the area the group agrees to "adopt."

The Adopt-a-Block program is looking for citizen, community, or business-based organizations throughout this great City that would like to be part of an effort to clean and beautify Wilmington streets, neighborhoods and communities.
