The City of Coquitlam has created the Adopt-A-Street program to increase community awareness and participation in litter control. Our mission is to maintain a sustainable and beautiful City by encouraging everyone to take an active role.

The program is a cooperative effort between the City of Coquitlam and its citizens and groups who want to achieve a litter-free environment and improve the appearance of our City.

Volunteering during the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Adopt-A-Street program continues to operate during the pandemic. Please contact the program coordinator at 604-927-3500 or adoptastreet@coquitlam.ca for information.

Who can participate?

Individuals and groups such as school groups, non-profit organizations, businesses, or neighbours. Get together with a group of friends and make a commitment to your community!

What work is required?

Adopt a municipal road with a minimum length of approximately 1 km, pledging to keep it free of trash and debris by performing litter pickup at least once a month. Volunteers must report their activity either via email or through the online Participation Record Form. A minimum commitment of 1 year is required. You will be provided with information kits, safety guidelines and litter pick-up equipment and work under the guidance and direction of staff from the Engineering and Public Works Department.

All interested volunteers must fill out an Adopt-A-Street Program Application. The City will furnish and install two Adopt-A-Street signs at the endpoints of your adopted street with your name to acknowledge your or your group’s commitment.​
