City of Bend Operations: Streets and Operations, Utilities and Airport

You Do Make A Difference!

The Bend Beautification Program is an opportunity for volunteers to improve the esthetics of Bend Oregon by adopting a stretch of road or a plot of land and improving its appearance through litter pickup, weeding and sometimes, planting new vegetation.

This program allows service clubs, private individuals, church groups, Neighborhood Associations and other groups an opportunity to help remove roadside litter and noxious weeds and provide landscape maintenance.

Public Works staff identifies sections of roadways that can be designated as safe and eligible for volunteer maintenance and develop a safety program to instruct groups on proper roadside safety procedures including signage, protective safety vest use, and procedures for the safe handling of potentially hazardous materials. The City of Bend will provide all safety signs, safety vests, trash bags and haul the debris to the landfill.

Find out about how to participate in this successful and rewarding volunteer litter and weed control program in your community.
