Adopt-a-Road

The City of Fort Pierce Adopt-a-Road program provides opportunities for individuals, businesses, clubs, and church organizations to adopt a one-half mile segment or more of city maintained roadway. Participants can help keep our city clean by simply agreeing to picking up litter and trash a minimum of six times a year. Not only is this a great opportunity for a little exercise but your organization will also receive recognition in the form of a sign located at the beginning and end of the segment of the roadway you maintain. 

Please help show your pride in the City of Fort Pierce and consider volunteering to help keep the roadsides litter free.

  • To Reduce litter along all City of Fort Pierce roadways
