The City of New Bern recognizes the need and the desirability of litter-free and visually-improved streets within the jurisdictional limits of the City of New Bern. Additionally, the City supports the Litter Free NC campaign in an effort to reduce litter’s harmful effects on public safety, wildlife, and the environment. The Adopt-A-Street program has been established for community and civic organizations as well as private businesses and industry to contribute toward the effort of maintaining cleaner and more beautiful streets in New Bern. The purpose of the Adopt-A-Street program is to encourage community residents and organizations to adopt residential blocks of streets and keep them litter-free. The adopted areas are to be cleaned a minimum of every three months in an effort to maintain a healthy environment and to produce feelings of pride in our beautiful city.
If you or your organization is interested in adopting a street complete the Adopt-A-Street agreement for below and return it to the City of New Bern's Public Works Department at 1004 S. Glenburnie Road, New Bern.
