Fall Sweep 2017

Fall Sweep
Here at Stanberry and Associates Realtors, we’ve been won over by the many amazing things that Bastrop county has to offer for quite some time. Whether it is the Lakes creeks and rivers, the tall pines, the fact that you can still get a ten acre tract that is zoned as a farm or the small town lifestyle that is still available out here, we realize this is really a special place.


Keep Bastrop County Beautiful is proud to be participating in Keep Texas Beautiful’ s 1st Annual Fall Sweep event.

We take pride in participating in projects that are always looking to improve Bastrop County and we know you do too. That’s why we’re looking for volunteers to participate in our official cleanup on 10/21/2017.

Grabbers, gloves, trash bags, recycle bags and refreshments will be provided.
If you or your organization would like to make a positive difference in our community, please come join us!

KBCB wishes to thank Bastrop Power & Light and Stanberry & Associates for their ongoing community support. Also, KTB, Don’t mess with Texas® and the Ocean Conservancy, with funding provided by Union Pacific and H-E-B for the clean up materials. And our local Sonic and Pizza Hut for providing the drinks and pizza for our wonderful volunteers!

See you there! #KTBFallSweep


An amazing day for the Bastrop Fall Sweep! Texas sized Love to the 25 volunteers that came out and showed that many hands do make light work. We collected about 30 bags of trash, 20 bags of recycling 400+ lbs of glass bottles, 5 tires, two bicycle frames and other assorted random goodies. Thank you to our sponsors, Bastrop Power & Light and Stanberry & Associates! And a shout out to Commissioner Hamner for free trash drop off at the County Transfer station, Monica at Lowe’s for lending us the awesome garden carts, Walmart for donating the big blue totes, Sonic for the refreshing, much needed drinks and Joshua at Pizza Hut for the yummy, best pizza we ever had! Here are the before and after pics and some of the team in action. Thank you, thank you, thank you….my heart is full and mother earth is singing! #KTBFallSweep
