THE WOODLANDS, TX -- Residents are invited to join The Woodlands Township for the 11th annual Earth Day GreenUp on Saturday, March 26, 2022. This is an opportunity to team up with family and friends to target litter in parks and green spaces and help keep our community beautiful while enjoying the outdoors. Each year more than a thousand GreenUp volunteers remove over 4,500 pounds of litter - the equivalent of 76 of our curbside trash carts!

Check in between 8 and 10 a.m. at one of eight Township parks noted below. Participants will receive disposable gloves, bags, a map to a nearby cleanup location and a limited supply of trash grabbers. All are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle and work gloves.

After returning bagged litter and equipment to the check-in site, participants will enjoy a “clean your block” party hosted by The Woodlands Township, your local Village Association and sponsors at each check-in site with a pizza lunch to celebrate your efforts with your neighbors from 11 a.m to noon.

Earth Day GreenUp is coordinated by The Woodlands Township Environmental Services Department with support from Waste Management, Woodlands Water, H-E-B, Howard Hughes Corporation, Chevron Phillips Chemical, Papa John’s Pizza, Keep Texas Beautiful and The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N. For more information, please email enviro@thewoodlandstownship-tx.gov or call 281-210-3800.
