Adopt a Street and join us in keeping cities beautiful

What is Adopt-a-Street?
Adopt-a-Street is a program created to reduce government spending on litter cleanup while allowing businesses or organizations to volunteer for the cleanup instead. In exchange for this work, a volunteering business or organization gets to have its name prominently displayed on a street sign erected on the stretch of city road awarded to that business or organization. Each city has specific terms a volunteering party must abide by to keep their sign for free.
For the City of Frisco, we at BeadifulBABY agree to clean our section of the street four times yearly. Visit your city's Adopt-a-Street program online to learn more about their program requirements.
What is the History of Adopt-a-Street?
Adopt-a-Street is an initiative derived from the Adopt-a-Highway program concocted by Tyler District engineer James R. "Bobby" Evans in the 1980s. From early 1963, Bobby was perplexed by the litter on the Texas highways in his district and the mounting costs of cleaning these roads. Learn more about Bobby's call to action from TXDOT.
So, in 1985, he developed a way to get his fellow patrons involved in the cleanup, where they would receive recognition for keeping Texas highways clean. The first stretch of road adopted on March 9, 1985, was a two-mile stretch of highway on U.S. 69 in Tyler, Texas, just north of Loop 323. Learn more about the history of this stretch of road.
Since 1985, almost every state has followed suit and enacted its own Adopt-a-Highway program, with hundreds of cities across the U.S. rolling out Adopt-a-Street endeavors to keep their city streets beautiful and pristine.

It was that time of year again when there was a chill in the air on a beautiful February Saturday, and many of the families and friends of a number of Adopt-A-Street roadways in Frisco, Texas, turned out to clean their streets. This morning my youngest daughter and I cleaned our section of street in northwest Frisco. We started our morning at 6 am with a Mochas and Javas hot chocolate and a Hurt's donut for my daughter and hot tea for me. We checked in with the crew at the City of Frisco for our gear and t-shirts, and we were on our way. We picked up almost two full bags of litter over two hours before heading back to the City of Frisco to turn in our supplies and then head out for breakfast. It was a wonderful morning doing something nice for our city and a great way to bond with my daughter. We talked about the funniest things and even complained a little that our bags were too heavy. Our morning was calm and settled, and it was nice for a change to just concentrate on something as simple as finding that stray piece of paper hidden within the grass and trees.
