Adopt – A – Highway
Keep McAllen Beautiful has partnered with the Texas Department of Transportation to maintain two miles of roadway located on Farm- to – Market Road 2220 ( Ware Rd. ) starting at Vine Avenue and ending at Expressway 83 . Volunteers are needed to help clean up the road and help keep McAllen litter free!
Great America Cleanup & Don’t Mess with Texas Trash Off
The Great American Cleanup (GAC) is the biggest cleanup event Keep McAllen Beautiful hosts in the City of McAllen. Every year LOTS of volunteers gather to help cleanup McAllen streets, Hike & Bike trail, along railroad tracks, parks, and neighborhoods. The GAC usually takes place in April. Everyone is treated to a free t-shirt, food and fun. Look forward to seeing you there!
Paint McAllen Beautiful
Do you enjoy painting? If so, Paint McAllen Beautiful (PMB) is the program for you. It runs through the months of February and March. Volunteers help beautify by painting low-income senior citizen’s homes. Homes are chosen through an application process and the applicant must meet income and household size requirements. The application is available in January.
We participate in many events throughout the year to promote our activities and to maintain a relationship with the community we serve. McAllen’s Palmfest is every October at the McAllen Convention Center and it provides Keep McAllen Beautiful with an opportunity spread the message of recycling.
Project Clean Neighborhoods
Project Clean Neighborhoods is designed to assist in helping to clean and beautify neighborhoods. Roll – offs (dumpsters) will be provided at no cost so that citizens may dispose of any broken appliances, trash or debris; as long as a few guidelines are met.
A cleanup can be scheduled in your area on a pre- determined Saturday from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. On that day, neighborhood residents may dispose of appropriate materials into the roll – offs. Dumpsters will be placed in designated area. Residents will be notified by the neighborhood homeowner’s association as to when and where the dumpsters will be located. At the end of the day, the containers will be picked up and materials collected will be disposed of.
