GREAT AMERICAN CLEANUP &
DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS TRASH-OFF 2023
SATURDAY, APRIL 15
MCALLEN MUNICIPAL PARK
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
The Great American Cleanup is an annual community effort to banish litter and trash from our parks, schools, streets, and sidewalks. Every year we pull together as a community and hold a giant volunteer event that picks up and bags tons of trash and removes it from our public spaces. This event is a chance to give back to the community you love and to make it cleaner, better looking, healthier, and safer for everybody to enjoy. We're serious! Did you know litter creates crime? And where there is less litter, people tend to be healthier. This year will feature The Oddest Item Contest! Entries will be judged after the cleanup. The winner will win a very cool prize, plus we will enter photos of the odd item collected in the Keep America Beautiful national contest! For a chance to win nationally!
You can sign up for this event individually, with your school, organization, business, church or as a Home Owners Association(neighborhood needs to be in McAllen and cleanup should be done in neighborhood).
- We will provide a T-shirt, trash bags, disposable gloves, and orange vests.
- Meeting place will be at Mcallen Municipal Park (1921 N Bicentennial Blvd) at 8AM.
- Lunch will be provided after the cleanup.
- Prizes, Music, and fun.
Together, we are making a difference.
ON-LINE REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE ON FRIDAY, APRIL 14 AT 12 NOON.
YOU CAN REGISTER AT THE PARK ON SATURDAY, APRIL 15.
