Each year, KLB hosts its annual Spring Clean up event in conjunction with Keep Texas Beautiful’s Trash Off and Keep America Beautiful’s Great America Clean Up activities. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, this event focuses on a city-wide clean up of Lewisville with special attention on areas in need.
This year, KLB will be hosting our annual Spring Clean Up as a week long Earth Day celebration where volunteers will go out on their own to cleanup our community April 17th- 24th, 2021.
To ensure social distancing, the event will run Saturday, April 17th through Saturday, April 24th. Volunteers will pick their own date and time that is convenient to clean their location. You can choose your own location, or KLB can assign you a location.
Pre-registration is required to participate.
- Supply pick up will be April 17th, from 9am to 12pm at the Residential Convenience Center located at 330 Jones Street, Lewisville Texas 75057.
- Supply return will be April 24th, from 9am to 12pm at the Residential Convenience Center.
- On April 24th, upon return of your supplies, volunteers will receive a free volunteer shirt.
- KLB provides all materials needed: trash bags, gloves, litter grabbers, and PPE if requested.
While we will not be hosting an environmental expo or onsite activities this year, we will have awards for most trash collected and most unusual item. To participate, volunteers should email the event coordinator with their cleanup stats and a group photo by Monday, April 26th. This includes the total number of volunteers, volunteer hours, and bags of trash collected. Don't forget to take a photo of your most unusual item and email it to email@example.com for the contest.
New this year, we will also be hosting an online photo contest on our Facebook page. Submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org to be uploaded into our event album. Photos will be uploaded on April 27th to the KLB Facebook page. The photo with the most likes by April 30th will win a prize, so check back and like your favorite photos!
Volunteers will be able to dispose of trash at a centrally located dumpster between April 17 and 24th, or choose to dispose of the trash in their residential bin.
This is a great event for all ages, and is a great way to get your family, business, or organization involved.

Litter doesn’t just appear; it is the result of careless attitudes and improper waste handling. People litter mainly because they feel no sense of ownership, even though areas such as parks are public properties. They believe someone else, such as a park maintenance or highway worker will pick up after them. The Spring Cleanup is about community pride and making our neighborhoods, streets, parks, and medians cleaner, greener, and more beautiful.
