Recycling at the Great American Cleanup
Keep Denton Beautiful encourages all Great American Cleanup volunteers to use the FREE blue recycle bags provided. Recycling reduces the impact on our Denton Landfill and helps us to conserve resources. As you complete your litter cleanup, be sure to sort recyclable material into the separate BLUE recycling bag you will receive with your supplies. See below for a handy “Recycling Guidelines” sheet to determine what items are recyclable here in Denton.
Stay Safe when you volunteer with KDB
Picking up roadside litter can sometimes get a little dirty and dangerous. The safety of our volunteers is a top priority for us at Keep Denton Beautiful. Please take a moment to review the “Safety Guidelines” document below, and be sure to contact us with any questions or concerns.
