Adopt-A-Spot

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.

August's Adopt-A-Spotlight: The Party Source

The Party Source team is the perfect example of the "Work Hard, Play Hard" motto that we all strive for. This group loves Covington and adopted a spot this year for their Party Source "Gives Back" program. Since the adoption, they have successfully beautified their spot by picking up trash weekly as well as planting and maintaining multiple flower pots. When not cleaning their own spot, they are happy to help out at other clean-up events, such as our annual Ohio River Sweep. Thanks for keeping Covington beautiful, The Party Source!
