Killeen will participate in the annual Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off April 8, and volunteers are needed to Killeen Up! Registration is online at www.killeentexas.gov/volunteer.
Last year, 751 volunteers in Killeen collected more than 9,800 pounds of litter during the Trash-Off. Event organizer Keep Killeen Beautiful is encouraging individual and group participation to make this year’s event even more successful.
Volunteers will meet at 8 a.m. at the Killeen Community Center, located at 2201 E. Veterans Memorial Boulevard, before spreading out to clean up sites across the city. The event will conclude with an appreciation lunch at the Community Center.
