New Adopters

Welcome to the Adopt-A-Program recruitment page! We're looking for groups and individuals to join the program as either a FORMAL ADOPTER. In 2015, participants cleaned up more 134 miles of Allen roadways, waterways, and spots removing 11, 502 lbs from the environment.

Groups or individuals interested in becoming a FORMAL ADOPTER must go through a probationary training period. The program requires that each adopter complete a min of 4 cleanups per year, participate in Allen Recycles Day & the Great American Cleanup, submit a statistic report & photos after each cleanup.
