Adopt a Spot is a litter prevention and maintenance program coordinated by Keep Macon-Bibb Beautiful. By forming partnerships with residents, neighborhoods, community organizations and corporations, KMBB engages locals with active participation in making our hometown a cleaner and more beautiful place to live, work and play. Adopt a Spot offers unique opportunities to increase public awareness while providing an important community service.

The mission of the Adopt-A-Spot program is to empower a group of people to join together and adopt a stretch of road or area of the city and commit to keeping it beautiful. Enough small spots add up to cover the entire Macon-Bibb community, and before you know it, everywhere we look in Macon-Bibb is beautiful.

EASY STEPS to Adopting Your Spot:

  1. CREATE a team
  2. PICK a spot (location)
  3. PARTNER with us
  4. COMMIT to it
  5. SUCCEED together

Adopt a Plot

Downtown businesses and property owners are also encouraged to adopt blocks and the planting beds installed along downtown streets and boulevards to maintain the city center’s charming pedestrian-friendly environment. To avoid clutter from traditional signage, garden plaques will be customized and placed in planting beds to recognize the participating sponsors. KMBB will provide safety vests, trash grabbers and garbage bags for quarterly cleanups.

Adopt a Lot

Custom programs are also designed for corporate partners who want to participate in specific geographic areas that are not suitable or accessible for basic pedestrian pickup programs. These areas may be located in industrial parks or along major highways. KMBB has developed a list of designated areas that are in need of additional corporate support and a representative is available to create custom cleanup solutions that match sponsor objectives.
