Adopt-An-Alley The length of an adoptable alley is one neighborhood block, but no more than three blocks. The commitment is a few hours each cleaning period with a minimum cleanup effort four times a year for a minimum of two years. Because the volunteers will be working in their own alleys, we suggest that alley clean up take place after the bulk/brush collection. As a reminder, per Tempe City Code, Chapter 29, all residents are required to maintain each alley that is adjacent to their premises free of weeds and debris to the center line of such alley.  

Adopt-A-Street The length of an adoptable street is a minimum of one mile, but no more than two miles. The commitment is a few hours each cleaning period with a minimum of one clean up every three months for two years. Signs crediting the volunteer or sponsor organization adopting the street will be paid for and installed by the City.

The commitment is a few hours each cleaning period with a minimum of one clean up every three months for two years. Signs crediting the volunteer or sponsor organization adopting the path will be paid for and installed by the City.
