Groveton supports the Fairfax County Litter Control Program and the “Adopt a Spot” Program.  Trash in front of your house degrades the appearance of your home and presents the community in a negative manner.  The trash gets washed into the drainage system and eventually into the streams.  This impacts the Chesapeake Watershed and the environment.  Trash attracts mice, rats, and other vermin to your home, which can create an infestation.

Groveton supports the “Adopt a Street” Program.  The approach allows the residents to be responsible for their street and to pick up trash and debris in the curbs and sidewalks on their street.  This workload sharing takes minimal effort on the part of the resident yet it ensures a clean and respectable community, Fairfax County provides the supplies.
