Local Girl Scout Troops 882 and 6654 helped clean up Heights Park recently by collecting nine large bags of trash. The troops, along with family members and adult leaders, were assisted in their efforts by the City’s Community & Corporate Environmental Cleanup Program, which provided supplies including trash bags, tongs and gloves.

The program is open to any group who wants to help the environment and beautify Richardson. It particularly focuses on trash near creek beds, to help minimize water pollution.
