Can volunteers choose a location to clean up?

Yes! Volunteers are encouraged to choose a location that is important to them. Choose any public space in Fort Worth - streets, creeks and other waterways, parks, etc. KFWB also chooses various hubs throughout the city. Volunteers are welcome to register for a hub location.

What do I do with the trash bags and/or recycling that was collected?

If possible, take your trash and recyclables to the nearest Drop-Off Station. Free vouchers will be provided upon request.

If you cannot transport your collected trash and recyclables, schedule a pick-up with our collection crews. First, place all bagged trash and recycling together in as few piles as possible. Then, contact the Customer Call Center at 817-392-1234 or email 1234@fortworthtexas.gov. 

You can also use the MyFW App and submit a pickup request direct from your mobile phone. Please provide specific location details of your trash pile (street names, block numbers, landmarks, etc). Photos can be uploaded and are helpful to our collection crews so that no bags or items are missed.
