Adopt A Spot is a community-based volunteer programme focused on minimising litter and promoting civic pride. Families, community groups, youth groups, schools and sporting associations are encouraged to help foster a healthier, greener and cleaner Northern Ireland by adopting and caring for a neglected area. Your Spot could be a mile of your favourite beach that is always full of litter, a local park or even the street you live on. If you can think of an area in need of a little TLC, why not adopt it?
The goal of Adopt A Spot is to help get people excited about where they live and empower individuals to take greater responsibility for the environment. One Spot at a time, we aim to accomplish cleaner streets and neighbourhoods, with less dog fouling, more biodiversity and better use of unused spaces.
When you Adopt A Spot, you are committing to:
After your application has been approved, we will contact you via email to provide information regarding local Kit collection points. Please note that, in order to minimize our carbon footprint, we must have a minimum number of applications in an area before a collection point can be arranged. As a result, this kit collection can take between 4-6 weeks depending on local demand.
