Sometimes all it takes is one person to help keep Covington clean. You can be that person by adopting your very own spot! This could be your street, a parking lot, your block, a park, a trail, a storm drain, a community gateway, or pretty much any little spot you can think of. Adopt-A-Spot provides Covington residents, business owners, students, or other organizations with the tools you need to help make a difference in your community.
