This program is where individuals, organizations or businesses can actively participate in keeping the City of Ramsey beautiful by volunteering to “adopt” a street, park, trail, lot or designated spot almost anywhere and agreeing to keep the area cleared of litter.
Individuals, organizations, or businesses are asked to “adopt” a street, park, trail, lot, or hotspot almost anywhere within the Ramsey city limits and agree to keep the area cleared of litter for at least two years and pick up litter at least two times per year.
The City supplies trash bags, reflective vests, and gloves to volunteers and will also give the organization a certificate suitable for framing. Plus, the City will erect a special Adopt-a-Spot recognition sign in your designated area.
If you decide to Adopt-a-Spot, select a representative as liaison to the Program Coordinator. Then choose the area your group would like to adopt and complete and return the Agreement Contract. View the application (PDF).
The City deposes collected litter for free! To schedule a pick-up, your liaison will need to call 763-433-9820 to discuss where and when the little should be picked up.
Yes! Through the City’s approval, volunteers can plant trees, shrubs or flowers along streets and take on other beautification projects. Contact the Program Coordinator and we would be happy to assist you with these projects:
When you initially inquire, the City will let you know what “spots” have already been adopted.
