How to join our Volunteer Program We keep a database of volunteers of all ages for events throughout the year. We keep in contact with our volunteers through a mailing list. Each volunteer that joins the program will need to submit a legal and media release form prior to participating in an event.
Adopt A Highway
This program allows individuals, organizations and businesses to maintain a one-mile section of roadside in Allen. The Texas Department of Transportation's Adopt A Highway program, launched in 1989, is one of the most successful government-public partnerships of our time. Many residents have shown their pride in Allen by striving for cleaner and "greener" roadways!
Adopt A Waterway
Litter is a common source of water pollution, threatening the health and beauty of our treasured creeks and streams. The Adopt A Waterway program allows volunteers to protect their waterways and improve water quality through quarterly cleanups.
Adopt A SpotKeep Allen Beautiful also offers an Adopt A Spot program, allowing organizations to play an active and ongoing role in cleaning, greening and maintaining a piece of Allen. Volunteers choose from selected public areas near parks, trails and greenbelts.

City of Allen provides reusable household chemicals for Allen and Plano residents through its Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program. The Chemical Reuse Center is where household materials like paint, cleaners, pesticides and other chemicals are offered to Allen and Plano residents. The Chemical Reuse Center is part of an effort to keep these chemicals out of the landfill.
