Community Safety & Well-Being Department Launches Tool Shed Program

The Adams County Community Safety & Well-Being (CSWB) Department has created a new program for residents in unincorporated Adams County. The Tool Shed program aids residents in beautifying their yards and neighborhoods.

“The events of the past year have taught us the value of our local community,” said Eva J. Henry, Board of County Commissioners Chair. “I’m excited we can offer this program and help our residents take even more pride in their homes and neighborhoods.”

The program offers two options for residents—yard cleanup and neighborhood cleanup. For yard cleanup, residents can check out individual tools to clean up their own yards or to help a neighbor clean up their yard. The neighborhood cleanup allows residents to check out the full Tool Shed for a larger, neighborhood cleanup.

“As a native of Adams County, I’m pleased to offer this new program to provide our residents a way to improve their homes and local communities, at no cost to them,” said Raymond Gonzales, Adams County Manager. “A lack of access to yard and gardening tools should not be a barrier for Adams County families.”

Both programs are free to use, and residents must meet specific requirements. The neighborhood and yard cleanups must be in unincorporated Adams County, the cleanup efforts must have a designated Cleanup Coordinator (for neighborhood cleanups), and the equipment or Tool Shed can be used for up to three days.
