Trash that blocks storm drains can cause street flooding and all of this trash makes it way to our creeks & lakes. Keep trash out of the street & parking lots by doing these simple things:
Reduce the number of bottles and plastic bags you use.
Utilize reusable water bottles instead of disposable bottles.
Keep reusable bags in your car for shopping.
Recycle plastic bottles.
Pick up all trash that you drop and any trash that is on your property!
Cigarette butts are still the number one item found in our waterways. Do not throw butts in the street, parking lot, grass, etc... Utilize a butt bucket or similar to keep your butts contained and easy to dispose in the trash.
Do you need a reusable shopping bag or butt bucket? Drop by 800 Main Street - 3rd floor, Garland (during regular business hours) with ID that shows you are a Garland resident and we will be happy to provide one. Limit of two bags and butt buckets per address.
