SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. – The City of Springfield is on a mission to keep Springfield beautiful by launching a city-wide cleanup and a new Adopt-a-Street program.
Citizens are invited to participate in Springfield’s Community Cleanup on Saturday, April 24, 2021, from 9 a.m. to noon at various locations throughout the city. The city has partnered with Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to provide all volunteer supplies including safety vests, bags, and gloves along with water to stay hydrated. Volunteering is easy. Register online at www.springfieldtn.gov/cleanup.
The city understands our streets need attention year-round, so the public works department has launched a new Adopt-A-Street Program to keep them litter-free. This volunteer program enables community organizations, businesses, and individuals the opportunity to help maintain and beautify city streets.
To participate in the Adopt-a-Street program, volunteers agree to adopt one-mile segments of a major or collector street and agree to remove litter a minimum of four times per year for at least one year. In recognition of the litter removal efforts, the city will install a sign recognizing participants for their commitment to the program and community.
