Keep Lewisville Beautiful is seeking volunteers for Cleanup Challenge Nov 1st- 13th


This year's fall cleanup will look a little different due to the COVID pandemic, but we are just as excited about sharing this fun volunteer opportunity with you! KLB is seeking volunteer groups to help clean up our community through our virtual Fall Sweep cleanup challenge. Volunteers must register for this event.

 

CLEANUP:
We are hosting a fun and family friendly cleanup challenge between Nov 1 and Nov 13th for individuals and small groups (10 or less) to host their own cleanups. YOU get to pick your cleanup date, time, and location during the challenge. You can clean your neighborhoods, parks, trails, and favorite public spaces. If you need help finding a location to clean, KLB staff can offer suggestions or assign you a location in need of cleanup.
KLB recommends groups of 10 or less, and strongly encourages the use of gloves and masks to adhere to social distancing guidelines.

 

REGISTRATION:

Volunteers must register to participate, and report their cleanup stats to KLB upon completion. Registration is open online by clicking the form above, or you can email amy@keeplewisvillebeautiful.org for questions. KLB asks that all groups/individuals report their cleanup date, location, how many people, number of volunteer hours, and number of trash bags collected.

 

SUPPLIES:

KLB will lend supplies to volunteers. Supplies include: litter grabbers, gloves, vests, trash bags, disposable masks if needed, and hand sanitizer. To get your supplies, please register for the event. Staff will contact you with the choice of a drive through pick up on the following dates:

 

  • November 5th- 4:00pm to 6:00pm
  • November 6th- 9:00am to 11:00am
  • November 13th (pick up 9am and supply drop off through 11am).
Supply pick up and drop off will be by appointment only. No walkups please.

 

Litter grabbers must be returned after your cleanup. If you are unable to return them by Nov 13th, please contact the KLB office. Litter Grabbers should be returned no later than November 15th or be subject to a replacement fee.

 

TRASH DISPOSAL:
Volunteers will be able to dispose of trash collected in a marked dumpster at the Lewisville Annex (1197 W Main St, Lewisville, TX 75067) between Nov 5th and Nov 14th. Trash needs to be bagged in the provided trash bags, and not loose. Do not leave trash outside of the dumpster. No appointment needed to drop off trash. Volunteers can also choose to dispose of the trash in their residential bins. No trash may be left onsite at your cleanup location.

Event History:

History: Hoping to raise awareness and appreciation of the Trinity River, Lewisville Lake, their respective shorelines, and 16 local creeks that feed into these waterways, Keep Lewisville Beautiful (KLB) partners with Keep Texas Beautiful, Keep America Beautiful, and the City of Lewisville to host an annual Trinity Trash Bash Celebration to clean our waterways.

Both the Trinity River and Lewisville Lake play an enormous role in supplying water to many Texans. The Trinity River is 715 miles long—its collection basin covers 17 counties, 17,965 square miles and is the primary water source for over 6 million Texans in the upper basin and 5 million Texans in the gulf coast region. That’s over half of the states population! The Trinity River and its water basin also accounts for nearly 6% of our State’s landmass. Lake Lewisville is part of the Elm Fork of the Trinity River and is comprised of over 233 miles of shoreline and 9,000 protected acres of nature. In addition to providing drinking water to Denton and Dallas County communities, Lake Lewisville is also a recreational area with a multitude of activities available, such as fishing, water sports, boating, biking, and miles of scenic hiking trails. It has even been named the official "Urban Bass Fishing Capital of Texas”.

KLB supplies participants with cleaning supplies, waterway education, free t-shirts, and goody bags as well as door prizes to show our appreciation for all of our volunteers who participate.

KLB is one of 42+ regional affiliates that works with T.R.E.E.S. (Trinity River Environmental Education Society) to help promote the Trinity Trash Bash and clean waterways in Texas.
