2020 Keep Weatherford Beautiful Trash-Off


This is a fun competition where we breakup into teams of 10 to see which team can gather the most litter. The Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off is the single largest one-day cleanup event in the state and serves as Texas’s signature event for the Great American Cleanup, the nation’s largest community improvement program. Engaging more than 4 million volunteers and community members, like you, annually has led to a positive and lasting impact for environments across the nation. Your participation sends a clear message to Texas.

 Winning team is awarded 2020 Keep Weatherford Beautiful Trash-Off trophies. All volunteers will be given a free Keep Weatherford Beautiful t-shirt and free lunch. We will have a Trash-Off scavenger hunt & "The Weirdest Find" competition. All gear such as visibility vests, disposable gloves and trash bags will be provided. Please wear comfortable clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.

We accept all ages! Please register each volunteer so we can prepare volunteer packets with the correct size shirts in them. If we do not have your size then we will put the closest size in your bag.
