If you think about it, nothing makes someone more proud to be a resident of a city than to have clean streets, yards, and walkways all around them. No one wants to live in a city-wide pig sty, but a freshly cleaned city can make everyone feel happy about their surroundings. That's why the Cities of Texarkana have banded together for a city-wide clean up effort on both side of Stateline.

The Cities of Texarkana, Arkansas and Texarkana, Texas will partner with the Texarkana Arkansas City Beautiful Commision and Texarkana, Texas’ Keep Texarkana Beautiful Committee, Waste Management and Leadership Texarkana to host a city-wide clean up event on Saturday, May 21st. 2016.

There will be five dumpster locations available for residents to rid their yards of large objects, and volunteers will staff each location from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The dumpsters will be at the following locations:

Collins Senior Center 3000 Texas Boulevard Texarkana, TX
Bringle Lake, West Park 7602 Bringle Lake Rd Texarkana, TX
Pecan Ridge 2210 W. 15th Street Texarkana, TX
Bramble Park, Texarkana, AR
Vera Kilpatrick School, 1002 E 35th Street Texarkana, AR

Residents are encouraged to pick up trash, recycle when possible, help their neighbors clean-up, and take pride in their community. Participants are asked to share their involvement on social media, using the hashtag #MAY21TXK.
