The Adopt-A-Spot program is an opportunity for businesses and community groups to invest in the health and beauty of our community and increase the quality of life for residents and visitors. Your business or group can adopt a spot along a roadway, in a park, along the Truckee River or in an open space area.AdoptASpot-Sign-500x497

How it works

When you adopt a spot, a sign with your name will be installed at your spot. We ask that you conduct at least three cleanups a year to keep your spot clean. You choose the dates!

KTMB will provide you with all the tools needed (bags, gloves, shovels, etc.) and coordinate trash pickup.  The map below shows all of the adopted spots in the region. If there is a spot you’d like to adopt, just let us know and we’ll gladly work with you to make it happen!

To adopt a spot (roadways, river, park or open space) please contact KTMB at (775) 851-5185 for pricing details.

Why do we charge a fee to adopt a spot?
As a non-profit, KTMB needs to cover its costs for administration of the program, tool supply, garbage bags, dumpsters and more for this program.  KTMB works hard to obtain grants, sponsorships and individual donations so that we are able to cover some of the cost of each spot.

We are currently not taking any scholarship applications for Adopt-A-Spot.

Please contact KTMB staff for pricing and availability of spots at [email protected] or (775) 851-5185.
