Volunteers Picked Up More than a Ton of Debris
 

DENTON, TX, Nov. 7, 2016 – On Saturday, Nov. 5, hundreds of volunteers gathered to clean up waterways in and around Denton at the City’s annual event, Stream Clean. As a result, 2,040 pounds of trash and 580 pounds of recyclable materials were picked up, as well as more than a dozen tires and other large items.
 
“Stream Clean is an opportunity for residents to work together for the better of our community, but it’s also a chance for them to see the impact of littering, said David Hunter, Denton Watershed Protection Manager.
 
At the Pecan Creek cleanup site near South Woodrow Lane, Julie Anderson, Denton Bike and Pedestrian Coordinator, led a small group of volunteers that picked up enough debris to fill up one truck alone.
 
“When I drove by the site, I could see there was a lot of litter,” said Anderson. “It was a great feeling to work as team and make a piece of Denton beautiful again.”
 
Stream Clean is sponsored by the City of Denton Water Utilities Department, Environmental Services and Sustainability, the Solid Waste and Recycling Department, and Keep Denton Beautiful. Volunteers included groups from Denton ISD, the University of North Texas, Texas Woman’s University, and FEMA Region 6.

Next year’s Stream Clean is tentatively planned for a Saturday in October. To receive information about the event, complete the volunteer form.
