Don't Mess With Texas Trash-Off

by Jessica Cervantez

Everyone's help is needed at the Texas Trash-Off Saturday. Thousands of people are expected to take part in the event.

Littering is a big problem all across the state and this event helps to clean things up. Cigarette butts are always one of the most common items found among the litter.

Krista Cloonan, of the Angelina Beautiful-Clean, said a big problem stems from the fact that people don't know cigarette butts aren't biodegradable.

Everyone is encouraged to help clean up their community. Those who live in Nacogdoches can meet at the recreation center starting at 9:00 a.m. Those who live in Lufkin can meet at the chamber of commerce at 9:00 a.m.
