Green Up Ashland's Adopt-A-Street Program

Green Up Ashland's “Adopt-A-Street” program is a volunteer-driven cleanup program to help address the community concerns of littering and cleaner streets. This program includes support from the Ashland Department of Public Works to collect litter and cleanup sections of unincorporated area roadways.
