Keep Hutto Beautiful Focuses on Litter Prevention Programs
To Benefit Hutto Community
Hutto, TX, February 13, 2019– Keep Hutto Beautiful (KHB) is kicking off 2019 with a focus on increasing litter prevention in Hutto through community outreach and programming.
The second annual Litter Attitudes Survey is currently open for all those that live or work within the Hutto area. The anonymous survey measures self-identifying litter attitudes, program awareness, and community-focused litter attitudes. Data collected is then used to identify locations within the community that might need assistance through cleanup initiatives such as Hutto's Adopt-A-Spot program and the Great Hutto Cleanup. The Litter Attitudes Survey is found at LITTER SURVEY and open until March 3rd.
The 2019 Great Hutto Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, April 6th. The annual event is the largest community-wide day of service in Hutto, Texas. Under the umbrella of Keep Hutto Beautiful, the Great Hutto Cleanup offers a free Junk Round Up for all citizens within the Hutto ISD boundary which includes document shredding, electronics recycling, paint and oil collection, etc. The event also features a litter cleanup throughout Hutto’s public areas and hosts the Golden Hippo Traveling Trophy contest between the neighborhoods. Online volunteer registration can be found at 2019 GREAT HUTTO CLEANUP, as well as a full list of items accepted at the Junk Round Up.
In March, the Hutto Adopt-A-Spot program will celebrate one year since its launch in 2018. In the first year, 15 groups adopted spots and held 19 cleanup events, which resulted in 820 pounds of litter being collected. Groups such as businesses, churches, scout troops, athletics, school groups, and civic organizations are encouraged to adopt areas in Hutto to clean throughout the year. The Hutto Adopt-A-Spot Program, a partnership between KHB and the City of Hutto, provides residents and/or organizations with a means to help keep the Hutto Community a clean and beautiful place to live, work, and play. By pledging to maintain a particular area of town, groups can make a visible impact on the local environment.
