Adopt-A-Block Program

Those who reside and work in the City of Lancaster desire an environment that is clean and attractive. A litter and trash-free city attracts residents, businesses and tourism which contribute to a prosperous and vibrant community. The City administers the Love Where You Live Initiative that contributes to the goal of a vibrant and clean City. Although these initiatives contribute to a reduction in litter, accumulation of trash continues due to carelessness of those who live, work and visit our city. The “Adopt-a-Block” program is an additional initiative that also relies on volunteers. This program is intended for organizations that want to participate on a more regular basis to monitor and maintain a specific street or area of the city.
