[ARCHIVED] Great American Cleanup/Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off

Midlanders will get together on Saturday, April 5 for one of the nation’s largest cleanups – The Great American Cleanup/Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off – co-sponsored by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Keep America Beautiful (KAB) and Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB), the grassroots arm of the Don’t Mess with Texas campaign and Keep Midland Beautiful.

Participating groups will clean up their designated area and are asked to attend a celebration picnic at Hogan Park from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 5. Groups not able to participate on April 5 are encouraged to do a litter cleanup before May 31 to still be counted as being part of the Cleanup/Trash-off. Keep Midland Beautiful has extended the event to a week in hopes of getting more groups to participate.

"Not everyone is able to help on April 5, so we decided to encourage the community to clean Midland anytime. Families, businesses, all groups can cleanup an area when it is convenient for them" says Doreen Womack, Executive Director of KMB.

The event is open to anyone interested in making Midlands’ public spaces litter-free. Adopt-a-Highway groups are in charge of highway cleanup, while Keep Midland Beautiful volunteers focus on neighborhoods, city streets, parks, and vacant lots.

“The annual Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off brings people across the city together to clean up our roadsides and take pride in Midland,” says Celia Page, Chairman of the Great American Cleanup/Don't Mess with Texas Trash-off.

This year’s event is sponsored by H.E.B., City of Midland, Secured Document Shredding, TXU, Midland County, Taco Villa, Butts Recycling, Community National Bank, Suddenlink, Members Financial Credit Union, Devon Energy, Ashmore & Associates Insurance, Jane Wolf Legacy Realtor, Rolling Video, Morrow Renewables, Concho Resources, Midland County Members Financial Federal Credit Union, Standard Sales, JGB Homes and the Midland Rockhounds.

Keep Midland Beautiful educates and engages Midlanders in litter prevention, beautification and waste management. For more information visit www.keepmidlandbeautiful.org, join us on Facebook or call 688-7745.
