Expansion of the program, previously only available at stops located in the City of Charleston, allows for more volunteers to get involved and more of the system’s approximately 1,000 stops to be kept clean. The goal of Adopt-A-Stop is to eliminate litter at the bus stops throughout the area.
How It Works:
Individuals, groups, civic organizations and private businesses are encouraged to volunteer
Volunteers are asked to service the can and remove litter at least once a week
All supplies -- including trash can, bags, gloves and more -- are provided by CARTA
Volunteers are able to choose which stop they adopt
Volunteers receive the added benefit of having their name displayed on a sign located at the site of their adopted stop
“The Adopt-A-Stop program is a great way to give back to get involved with your community and, quite honestly, receive some free marketing,” said CARTA Board Chairman Mike Seekings. “This program not only benefits the community, but also plays an integral role in protecting the environment. This program is a plus for riders, businesses and everyone in between. ”
The Adopt-A-Stop program in Charleston city limits is operated through a partnership between Keep Charleston Beautiful and CARTA.
