The Woodlands Township hosts successful Earth Day GreenUp with help of volunteers
THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The Woodlands Township celebrated the 11th annual Earth Day GreenUp, a community-wide cleanup event, on Saturday, March 26, 2022. Nearly 700 volunteers worked together to clean litter from greenbelts, roadsides and waterways.
“Keeping litter out of our green spaces and waterways not only protects the environment, but also helps to maintain property values, supports recreation and sustains pride in The Woodlands,' said Township Environmental Services Manager John Geiger. 'To help keep the community beautiful, please choose reusable products versus single-use, ensure trash and recycling make it into the right receptacle, and take a moment to pick up litter when outdoors. Small actions go a long way to protecting the environment.”
To help keep The Woodlands beautiful throughout the year, the Township offers the Adopt-A-Path program. Organize your own cleanup with friends, family and co-workers and consider adopting a pathway. Township Environmental Services lends trash grabbers, bags and gloves to volunteers. For more information or to reserve equipment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 281-210-3800.
