San Marcos – Spring Great Texas River Cleanup

March 6, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

The 2021 Spring Clean-Up is Saturday, March 6th! Due to COVID-19, this river clean-up will be different than previous events (and similar to the Fall River Clean Up). Please remember – all volunteers are required to wear a mask & practice social distancing. Clean up crews should not exceed 10 volunteers. Because we are unable to host a Headquarters in each watershed, each group of volunteers will choose their desired clean up area & designate a crew leader from their group.

The crew leader from each area will pick-up supplies the week before the event – if you are volunteering individually, you are responsible for picking up your own supplies

Supplies pick-up: Monday, March 1st through Friday, March 5th, 8 am – 5 pm

Supplies included: gloves, white/clear recycling bags, black trash bags, & hand sanitizer. Email Katie Garcia at Kgarcia2@sanmarcostx.gov to schedule a pick-up time

Day of – Disposal Site:

Crew leaders will bring the litter from their area to the designated disposal location at Grant Harris Building, 401 E Hopkins on Saturday, March 6th, 9:30 am – 1:30 pm.

If you need assistance with litter disposal, contact Amy Thomaides at AThomaides@sanmarcostx.gov (before the event) or 512.618.9951 (day of the event). Please keep in mind we have limited personnel available for assistance. Remember if you bring your litter to the disposal location, you get free stuff!

Don’t forget to bring water and dress appropriately for your area. Volunteers may also want to bring sunscreen, bug spray, extra hand sanitizer, and a first aid kit.
Please share your pictures with our community! Please send photos to RecyclingInfo@sanmarcostx.gov and tag the following:

We are also encouraging volunteers to participate in the global #TRASHTAG Challenge by taking a picture of your clean up area before and after removing litter then sharing the image on social media with #TRASHTAG & #SMTXChallenge
