Keep Rowlett Beautiful is hosting the 2021 Great American Cleanup/Don't Mess with Texas Trash-off

About this Event

On Saturday, April 24th, 2021 Keep Rowlett Beautiful, an affiliate of Keep Texas Beautiful, along with Keep America Beautiful is celebrating the Don't Mess with Texas Trash-off/Great American Cleanup’s 23rd year!

Litter is a major problem in Rowlett and across the world. In addition to spoiling our views and decreasing our property values, litter is harmful to the environment.

We all have opportunity to “act locally while thinking globally”

Litter on the ground almost always finds its way into a waterway, especially in an area surrounded by water like Rowlett. Wildlife and marine animals become sick from eating litter or become entangled in litter limiting their ability to meet basic needs. As if that wasn’t bad enough, litter decreases property values, neighborhood satisfaction and encourages more littering. That’s right. People are more likely to litter in an area where litter is already present. And cleaning up the mess is costly.

This year, we have set up multiple “small pod” sites where groups of 10 (or more depending on the size of the site) people can sign up. Choose your site, sign up your group and we will be there with supplies!

We will have a gift for each volunteer and a bag full of fun and exciting things!

If you would rather work on a site that is not listed, let us know! It takes all of us to Keep Rowlett Beautiful!

Thank you for signing up!
