You can now use the City of Tallahassee’s DigiTally App for reporting your clean-up events! DigiTally is the City’s non-emergency customer gateway to a host of City services, where residents can easily report issues such as graffiti, broken street lights and pot holes – and now, Adopt A Street clean-ups, too!

DigiTally can be download as a mobile application for IOS and Android*, or it can be used on desktops and laptops. Either way, your information will be saved and sent to KTLBC and City staff.

Download DigiTally at the App Store (IOS)

Download DigiTally at the Google Play Store (Android)

Proceed to the non-mobile version of DigiTally

If you’ve already downloaded the app, swipe down from the top of the app screen and release to refresh and update the app.

To report a clean-up:

  • Open DigiTally and select “New Request” on the first screen and on the next screen scroll down to “Public Streets and Rights-of-way”
  • Choose “Adopt A Street Litter Removal Report.”
  • A map will appear at your location (so it is best to report while you are on your adopted street, but the location pin can be moved if needed); choose “Next” at the top of the screen and fill in the requested information, and tap “Next” again;
  • Review the information, and tap “Submit.”


That’s it! Your reports are important information for us, and we hope you’ll take advantage of this new option.
