From Keep Texas Beautiful: KTB looks forward to resuming group cleanups when it is safe for large gatherings. At this time, we are promoting individual cleanups or joining members of your household only. Please follow all local, county, and state guidance. KTB reminds Texans to stay safe when choosing to go outside and clean up your communities. When picking up litter, KTB recommends participants to do so responsibly and at their comfort level. Your cleanup group should include only members of your household. Please wear a face mask and disposable gloves, and use a litter grabber. Maintain at least 6 feet of distance from passersby. When you are finished collecting litter, please make sure your trash bag is securely tied to protect sanitation workers. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water and hand sanitizer after collecting litter. Please dispose of your single-use face masks and disposable gloves properly and in the waste bin. Until we can safely resume large gatherings, KTB will not provide cleanup supplies. We look forward to shipping cleanup supplies again when we can join neighbors and friends out in our communities!
