Adopt a Spot today!

Keep Dubuque Clean - Adopt a Spot!

Wondering how you can contribute to a healthier watershed? The City now offers a way for individuals, businesses, school groups, and other organizations to play an active role in keeping the community clean and beautiful.
The Adopt-A-Spot program allows participants to "adopt" a public space such as a street, waterway, park, or storm drain and make a commitment to regularly clean and maintain the spot for no less than one year.
