Keep Pearland Beautiful is also gearing up for its second quarter cleanup.
The event will be on the official clean up day for Don’t Mess With Texas Trash Off Saturday, April 6.
Participants are invited to breakfast, and supply pickup from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the Lone Star Pavilion of Centennial Park. KPB is providing a giveaway for those who attend the breakfast.
If participants cannot pick up their supplies, they can arrange to pick them up on another date and time and not participate in the breakfast.
Many groups already have an adopt-a-spot; for groups that do not, they will be assigned an area or a group to assist, depending on the size of the group requesting a spot.
On the same day, April 6, Pearland Clean and Green will take place with volunteers meeting at 8 a.m. at Pearland Town Center at 11200 Broadway St., Ste. 2751. This is the fourth Clean and Green event and was put together as an annual grassroots effort where residents of the city can participate in the biggest city clean up activity organized by KPB in partnership with Shadow Creek Outdoors Club.
At this event, residents can bring documents for onsite shredding and can also recycle electronics. Kids get treats and are rewarded for cleaning up and can attend a fun interactive workshop on recycling.
Local area businesses sponsor this event and are present with information and handouts. A stage program is also presented to showcase local talent in form of dances, singing, skits and other demonstrations.

KPB and the Outdoor Club invite every organization, scout, business, friends, neighbors, clubs, groups, and individuals to sign up to clean and earn community hours.
