Adopt A Mile

Adopt-a-Mile (AAM) is a litter reduction and prevention program. Through organized quarterly cleanups, community volunteers reduce the amount of litter along the roadways in Smyrna. The Adopt-a-Mile program raises awareness about the issue of litter and helps keep our community clean. In 2023, volunteers cleaned over 7,300 lbs. of litter from Smyrna roadways.

Our Adopt-a-Mile program is our greatest volunteer need and Keep Smyrna Beautiful relies on hundreds of volunteers for the success of this program. We invite you or your civic group, company, family, faith-based group, or friends to adopt a mile and personally invest in the environment and Smyrna community. We provide all the training and supplies that volunteers need.

Commitment

If your group is interested in a regular volunteer opportunity, consider adopting a mile. Groups who adopt a mile stretch of roadway commit to cleaning it at least four times annually. Keep Smyrna Beautiful organizes quarterly cleanup dates, however, groups can clean as their schedule allows. Signs with the group name are provided at the beginning of the mile.
