You Can Make a Difference!
Oakland Adopt a Spot
Oakland Adopt a Spot is designed to help you and your fellow volunteers play an ongoing role in maintaining a public space that needs some extra attention. Adoptions can include parks, creeks and streets (including storm drains, median strips, curbs, pathways, and more). In partnership with your efforts, Public Works will loan tools, gloves and safety vests, as well as arrange for removal of collected debris.
Join the hundreds of residents, businesses and community groups who are already participating! For more information, please visit Oakland Adopt a Spot.
Cleanup and Beautification Events
Public Works also supports two large events coordinated by Keep Oakland Beautiful: the Great American Cleanup in the spring and Daffodil Day in the fall.
If you are interested in organizing your own cleanup or beautification event, contact us at (510) 238-7630 or email@example.com with your idea. We may be able to provide tools, trash pickup and other logistical support.
