“Litter Crew Ahead” safety signs are available if adopting group feels the necessity. There is a mandatory 15 minute training by the City of Longview’s Public Works division for these signs to be used. Adopting Sponsors would keep these signs in their possession.

If, in the sole judgment of Keep Longview Beautiful, it is found that the adopting Sponsor is not meeting the terms and conditions of this agreement, Keep Longview Beautiful may terminate the adopting agreement and remove Sponsor name signs immediately. This agreement may be modified in scope or altered in any other manner at the sole discretion of Keep Longview Beautiful. Keep Longview Beautiful and/or the City of Longview do not assume any liability or responsibility for the actions of the Adopting Sponsor and/or any participants in performing these volunteer duties.

By signature below, the Sponsor, both jointly and severally, acknowledges the potentially dangerous nature of the volunteer work and agrees to the above terms and conditions. This agreement shall commence on the date listed below and endure until such time as terminated by either the Adopting Sponsor or Keep Longview Beautiful.
