Adopt-A-Trail/Roadway

Adopt-A-Trail/Roadway is a program that lets residents improve sections of trails or greenspaces along local roadways. Show your community pride by maintaining the tidiness of these adopted areas and help keep Wood Buffalo a clean and beautiful place to live!

Adopted trails or roadways must be between a half kilometre and three kilometres in length and located on municipal land. The program requires a minimum commitment of four litter cleanup sessions between May and September.

Volunteer groups are eligible for a one-time Fee for Service payment following the completion of the fourth litter cleanup session. The Fee for Service is calculated based on a rate of $250/km of roadway (both sides of the roadway, excluding median) and $100/km of a trail. Each session must be reported to the Program Coordinator upon completion.

2019 Adopt-A-Trail/Adopt-A-Roadway Program – Volunteer Opportunity
Make a difference and volunteer to help keep Wood Buffalo Beautiful!
By adopting a trail or roadway you are helping to improve the appearance of your community and play a part in creating a sense of home! Together with your family, friends, neighbours, and/or colleagues, you help to keep our communities look clean and cared for.  
The Adopt-A-Trail/Adopt-A-Roadway Program provides residents with an opportunity to improve sections of trails and/or greenspaces along local roadways. Volunteers show community pride by maintaining the tidiness of these adopted areas and help keep Wood Buffalo a clean and beautiful place to live! For all volunteers/groups that complete the program, a sign will be posted in the vicinity of the adopted area which recognizes the volunteers/group.

Your valued commitment as a volunteer contributes to the health and safety of our trails and roadways within the region. The Adopt-A-Trail/Roadway Program is a volunteer program and as such, no Fee for Service is offered.
Adopted trails or greenspaces along roadways must be between a half kilometre and three kilometres in length and located on municipal property. The program requires a minimum commitment of four litter cleanup sessions between May and October.  Each litter cleanup must be reported by emailing beautification@rmwb.ca or calling 780-743-7966 indicating the number of bags collected, the location of the bags for pickup (or let us know the bags were already disposed of by your group and the number of bags), as well as the location of heavy items or sharp items for pickup.  Graffiti wipes are also available to encourage graffiti removal.
If you come across graffiti, illegal dumping sites, or a homeless camp, report it through PULSE Online or by calling PULSE: Wood Buffalo at 780-743-7000.
