Katy Spring Cleaning: Litter Drop-Off Event, Plus Useful Tips


March 29, 2021

By Natalie Cook Clark

Spring has arrived, and that means spring cleaning for the Katy community. A local group is making it easier for residents to get rid of excess trash and recyclables.

Gather Your Trash for Drop-Off

What can residents do to safely dispose of those hard trash items and keep our community clean? Katy residents can participate in a community-wide clean up and/or drop off their trash and recyclables.

On Saturday, April 10, Keep Katy Beautiful is hosting their annual Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off. The local group educates and encourages the Katy community to take responsibility for beautification, trash reductions, and litter prevention.

Any Katy resident can drop off items such as paper to be shredded and electronics. This year, the group is also accepting scrap metal, appliances, cardboard, yard debris, oil and paint, and wooden pallets.

Join a Team to Clean Up Katy

The event was created to help engage the community to clean up litter in the City of Katy. Residents can participate in teams that will be assigned to pick up harmful litter and debris along the city’s roads, local parks, and other areas.

The Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off is 9 a.m. to noon at Katy’s First Baptist Church on Pin Oak Road.

Regular household trash will not be accepted. Please see their website for more information as well as the flyer below.
