Employees with Metro by T-Mobile braved the warm weather Thursday and volunteered their time for a couple of hours picking up trash along the railroad easement south of Arapaho Road, beginning near the Richardson Gymnastics Center. The effort was part of the City’s Community & Corporate Environmental Cleanup Program (CCECP), which provides guidance and supplies to area groups wishing to help keep the city clean and prevent trash from blowing into waterways. Supplies provided include plastic gloves, tongs and trash bags, and the City picks up the bags, if needed, when the event is finished.

Any group of any size is welcome, from families wishing to volunteer together to youth needing service hours to corporate groups needing a team-building event. To schedule a CCECP cleanup event, contact the Health Department at 972-744-4078 or e-mail Janice.Tower@cor.gov
