Citywide cleanup

KLB re-schedules 23rd annual Spring Cleanup

Volunteers are needed for the 23rd annual Keep Lewisville Beautiful citywide cleanup to be held Saturday, May 23, from 9 a.m. to noon. This event had been scheduled for May 9 but was postponed when Lewisville ISD schools closed in response to the HiN1 virus (swine flu). The local event is being held in conjunction with the Keep Texas Beautiful Trash Off and the Keep American Beautiful Great America Clean Up. Volunteers are needed for clean up teams and on-site help.

Registration starts at 9 a.m. in the parking lot of Lewisville High School, 1098 W. Main Street. Cleanup teams will then go to their assigned locations around the city to collect litter and other trash, returning at noon for lunch and door prizes. Trash bags, gloves and grabbers will be provided.

Last year’s cleanup collected 4.6 tons of trash from medians, roadways and greenbelts. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to sign up as individuals or groups to help make this year’s effort even more successful. Those wanting to participate but unavailable on May 9 are invited to organize their own cleanup or Adopt-A-Spot through KLB.

Local businesses also are encouraged to show your support for a cleaner community by having employees clean the grounds outside the business, closing dumpster lids, and having plenty of trash receptacles for customers to use.

For volunteer or donation information, please send e-mail to info@keeplewisvillebeautiful.org or call 972.436.5100.

Keep Lewisville Beautiful, an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and Keep Texas Beautiful, is the city’s longest-standing and most successful environmental organization, committed to educating Lewisville residents to take greater responsibility for enhancing their community.
