"We do not
inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."
We feel that understanding green initiatives such as recycling, rain water collection, and composting begins with education. Teaching both children and adults about the importance of diverting landfill waste through practicing the 3R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) allows for a better understanding of not just the 'what' but the 'why' as well.
As an affiliate of Keep Texas Beautiful, we are involved in America Recycles Day, Waste In Place Training, and hold an annual Junk Round Up as part of our Great Hutto Cleanup. Providing opportunities for safe disposal of undesirable items and encouraging friendly recycling competitions, are just some of the ways we strive to Keep Hutto Beautiful.
Keep Hutto Beautiful is dedicated to the beautification and sustainability of the Hutto Community. Our mission is to inspire the community to be environmentally engaged by providing education, resources, green initiatives and beautification opportunities.

There are many reasons to recycle plastic bottles. For starters, recycling reduces the pollution that can come from the chemicals used to make these bottles. Recycling also helps cut down on the amount of trash thrown into landfills, so our garbage doesn't take up as much space. Recycling also creates jobs for people who collect recyclable things and work at places that turn them into new materials.
