As part of the City of Fort Worth’s Litter: Stop It! Report It! Pick It Up! campaign, the Code Compliance Department is hosting a series of monthly litter cleanups throughout the city.

This month, more than 40 volunteers, residents and City staff came together to help in the Polytechnic Heights area. The group dedicated a Saturday morning to removing litter from public areas in the neighborhood.

As an added effort of the City’s litter campaign, street sweepers conducted sweeps of the area following the cleanup event.

Check out these impressive stats:

  • 131 bags of litter were collected.
  • 50 tires and other loose debris were removed.
  • In total, 13,810 pounds of litter and debris were collected.
