Keep Greenville Beautiful
April 20, 2012 by Mark
Across Texas, a movement has been kicked off to get rid of the trash on all major roadways and beautify Texas by the Greenville Parks and Recreation Department; it’s called: “Texas Trash-off.” Greenville is next. Volunteers have stepped up to pick up trash there and all over Texas. Greenville calls it: “Keep Greenville Beautiful”.
For those who have and who are volunteering, special orange vests will be given out by the Greenville Parks and Recreation Department, in addition to trash bags. However, the organization is encouraging anyone participating to also wear work gloves to protect their hand, bring water to stay hydrated and sunscreen to keep their skin safe.
The organization will provide a free lunch to those who volunteer to pick up trash. The Greenville Parks and Recreation Department is in charge of the free hot dog lunch. The lunch is to begin at 11:30 am. The Greenville Parks and Recreation Department, in addition to advertising through various forms of media, has attracted several volunteers through the use of brochure printing and distributing them throughout the city.
The organization is offering recycled trophies for different categories of findings. The categories are for the youngest volunteers, the oldest of volunteers, the strangest of findings and for the largest civic group. Even for those persons not volunteering, the organization is requesting that the public take part in the effort by taking part in their yards and neighborhoods.
