Keep Weatherford Beautiful Trash-Off

This is a fun competition where we breakup into teams of 10 to see which team can gather the most litter. The Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off is the single largest one-day cleanup event in the state and serves as Texas’s signature event for the Great American Cleanup, the nation’s largest community improvement program. Engaging more than 4 million volunteers and community members, like you, annually has led to a positive and lasting impact for environments across the nation. Your participation sends a clear message to Texas.

 Winning team is awarded 2021 Keep Weatherford Beautiful Trash-Off trophies. All volunteers will be given a free Keep Weatherford Beautiful tote bag and free lunch. We will have a Trash-Off scavenger hunt & "The Weirdest Find" competition that we will post to Facebook to judge. All gear such as visibility vests, disposable gloves and trash bags will be provided. Please wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
