Help clean up unsightly litter that lines roadways, waterways, and vacant lots by participating in the Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off on March 29. Individuals, families, church, school and civic groups, and homeowner teams can sign up to collect litter around the city then attend the volunteer picnic at Granger Recreation Center, 1310 W. Avenue F, from 11 a.m. to noon. The first 275 participants who register by March 19 will receive an event t-shirt. Keep Garland Beautiful will furnish trash and recycling bags, gloves and litter tongs to make the cleanup as easy as possible.
Sponsors of the 2014 Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off are Keep Garland Beautiful, Garland Environmental Waste Services, Garland Stormwater Management and the Citizens Environmental and Neighborhood Advisory Committee.
