Saturday, April 13, is the official City Wide Trash-Off Event. Start now to organize your team to pick up litter along our city streets and in our parks. Many hands make light work! If you are not a member of an organization and want to help, there is a sign-up sheet at the city office. Sign up when you go in to pay your water bill!
The city yard on Jones Avenue will be open for large items you wish to discard Monday, April 8, to Friday, April 12. Pick up a voucher at City Hall to drop off old furniture, appliances, trashed kids’ toys, etc. No tires, batteries, fuels or wet paints will be accepted. More information on how to get rid of those items below. If you need help removing large items from your garage/yard and getting them to the city yard, please leave your name and address at the city offices. The people at KBB will find someone to help you.
Get your group signed up to help before March 20 to receive a Keep Blanco Beautiful T-Shirt. Anyone who comes out to work on April 13 will be rewarded with a noon meal and a big thank-you from the community, as well as the pride you feel in a job well done. Contact Retta Martin to get a sign-up sheet (833 -4720)
