The Annual Hunt for FestiviTREES is sponsored by KBCB (Keep Bastrop County Beautiful), The DBA (Downtown Business Alliance) and the Bastrop Mainstreet Program. Businesses create a Christmas tree made out of recycled materials. Customers visit the participating businesses and then vote for their favorites. If the customer visits all participating businesses, they are entered into a drawing for a gift basket filled with items donated by the businesses. In reality, we’re ALL winners by promoting recycling and repurposing and by getting out and visiting businesses in our local Community.

Keep Bastrop County Beautiful and Lone Star Disposal team up to create grant program to reward educators
BASTROP, Texas — Jan. 6, 2014 — Today the first annual Keep Bastrop County Beautiful Lone Star Disposal Grant recipients were announced. Grants were awarded to Bastrop Independent School District (BISD) teachers for their efforts to educate students about the importance of environmental stewardship and recycling.
The grant was funded by a donation from Lone Star Disposal and a match from Keep Bastrop County Beautiful (KBCB). Submissions were received from BISD teachers of kindergarten through fourth grade. Selection of the winners was based on current environmental stewardship course material and their plans to use the grant money to further expand related education.
“Education of all the children in our community plays a vital role in our ability to protect the environment today and into the future,” said Sharon Rowe, co-owner of Lone Star Disposal.
