Pick Up The Parks!
Littering in the Fort Worth Community
First of all our root cause is that younger people are more likely to litter than older people. Over 900,000 pounds of litter was picked up in 2014. Also, in Fort Worth there are not enough litter crews to keep the community clean. People seeing a lot of litter can also influence them to litter more themselves. Over a one year period if every Texas citizen took a little bit of time to pick up two pieces of litter every month, then our highways would be free of litter. By creating Pick Up the Parks we will encourage people of all ages to keep the community clean. With Pick Up the Parks younger people can become involved in there community and pick up trash once a week in the summers.
