Keep Worcester Clean (KWC) is a coordinated city-wide effort by multiple partners who work year-round cleaning litter and other debris such as abandoned vehicles, graffiti and more, from the streets and sidewalks. But they can't do it alone - residents who respect and value their community are the heart of the program. We must all work together to keep our city clean.
We must all work together to Keep Worcester Clean. Here are some simple ways that you can help:
Please help keep our city clean!
The Adopt An Island Program is a comprehensive clean up and awareness program, seeking support from all segments of the community. This program seeks sponsors and volunteers to work in partnership with the city and allows these sponsors to choose a traffic island or median that they can maintain and beautify.
The city cannot do it alone but with your help we can make a big difference. By adopting islands and working in partnership, we can make Worcester more beautiful than it already is. Adopting an island will allow sponsors the opportunity to help the city and show their pride in the community. We encourage all to participate and look forward to a variety of clean and colorful islands.
