Individuals or groups may sponsor City trash cans to prevent garbage overflow in high traffic areas. The sponsor must monitor the basket and change the liner when the basket is full.

The Department of Sanitation provides liner bags and a collection schedule. You can also request literature about the program.

Learn about the Adopt-a-Basket Program.

Adopt-A-Basket program participants will receive basket liners approximately every 60 days. If you are enrolled in the program and have run out of liners, you can request more.

311 can submit a request for additional liners for your adopted litter basket. Each box will be delivered by the Department of Sanitation.

Liners can only be requested for and delivered to the address enrolled in the Adopt-A-Basket program.

Call 311 for assistance by phone.

You can get a flyer about the Adopt-A-Basket program.
