Adopt-a-Spot | Year round litter prevention program


Litter is unsightly, bad for the environment and costly to tax payers. Help keep McKinney Beautiful and volunteer to help collect litter in our parks, along a road or green space, or near a creek. Adopt-a-Spot is a great opportunity to improve your community by preventing pollution, practice good citizenship, have a great time, and receive recognition.
