LITTER FACT: If every person in Texas picked up just two pieces of trash every month, our streets and highways would be completely litter-free in just one year!!
One of the most common pieces of litter is paper products. A considerable amount of paper litter in Lago Vista comes from recycle cart spillage during collection. Our recycle material is not bagged like our trash. When the carts are picked up lightweight loose pieces can fall out and are carried by the wind to litter our streets and roads. Overfilling recycle carts is a common cause of spills. Cart lids should be tightly closed as shown above. Other ways to avoid spillage is to avoid putting separate small pieces of paper into the cart. Put small pieces of paper in recycled envelops. Break down cardboard boxes. Put shredded paper in paper bags. Finally, check the area and pick up and spilled items. If we all accept the Lago Litter Challenge we can reduce unsightly litter and Keep Lago Vista Beautiful.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community. Your contribution today helps us make a difference.
