Keep Tyler Beautiful (KTyB) is encouraging people of all ages to demonstrate that they love where they live by joining hands and volunteering for the 2012 Great American Cleanup and Texas Trash Off on Saturday, April 14 at 8:30 a.m. at Rose Rudman.
In 2011, more than 100 volunteers took part in this event collecting nearly 2,000 pounds of litter and debris.
The Great American Cleanup takes place across the country throughout the months of March, April and May. Coupled with the Don’t Mess with Texas Trash Off, an anticipated 1,200 Keep America Beautiful (KAB) affiliates and participating organizations will bring together an estimated 3.8 million volunteers to clean up our cities and states.
In what continues to be part of the nation’s largest grassroots community improvement program, KTyB volunteers will clean up litter and debris from Rose Rudman Park and Mud Creek. This is a great opportunity to encourage civic engagement and action.
