PARTICIPATE IN THE 2017 DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS® TRASH-OFF
Saturday 8 April 2017, 9am – noon
The Trash-Off encourages Texans across the state to join forces and clear Texas roadsides of trash. Millions of pieces of litter accumulate on our roadways each year, which means we need your help.
Everyone can participate! Volunteers come from all walks of life: students, business leaders, civic and non-profit organizations, individuals, families, community groups, sororities, fraternities, sports teams, military, etc. If you have some free time, please volunteer and make a difference.
Keep Bastrop County Beautiful is coordinating with The Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off as the single largest one-day cleanup event in the state and serves as Texas’s signature event for the Great American Cleanup, the nation’s largest community improvement program. The Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off is part of TxDOT’s litter prevention program, which includes Don’t mess with Texas, Adopt-a-Highway, and a grassroots partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful. Generous support is provided by the City of Bastrop through Bastrop Power & Light.
On Saturday, April 8 from 9am to 12pm, Keep Bastrop County Beautiful is collaborating with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept. at Bastrop State Park.
Join us and be a part of this great event. Your participation sends a clear message to Texans everywhere: The smallest efforts really do make the biggest difference. Take pride in the fact that you were part of making our great state beautiful. Join in on this event and help us make a difference.
