One thing that has caught my attention in the past month is the increase of trash along El Dorado from Coit West to the Tollway and also the stretch west of Independece on Main St to Preston. I know the Main St. trash is all along the chain linked fence and it hasnt moved so I was curious if the city has made some cutbacks on budget with landscaping crews or who exactly is responsible for picking those areas up? Thanks

As the City of Frisco keeps growing in leaps and bounds, it seems somewhat inevitable that so much of our waste ends up alongside the roadways. But even though our city’s growth leads to more overall waste production, it should at the same time inspire individual citizens to clean up our streets and keep our city looking beautiful. Many Frisco citizens do not realize that it is so many of them who shoulder the responsibility of keeping our city clean.

Our Adopt-A-Street program serves as a home base for the intrepid efforts of Frisco citizens to organize and conquer escalating litter and waste in our city’s streets. A group can “adopt” a stretch of road when they pledge to organize clean-ups at least four times a year for that area and participate in the city’s annual Clean It and Green It event. Just like adopting anything else, citizens can learn to take care of, respect and even love their little piece of Frisco! The Environmental Services department provides groups of citizens with basic clean-up equipment when they submit their pledge. A group of citizens can apply to Adopt-A-Street by visiting our website at http://www.friscotexas.gov/departments/publicworks/environmentalservices/Pages/A doptAStreet.aspx and downloading our Adopt-A-Street contract and reporting form. Citizens can also call Environmental Services at 972-292-2900 for more information.

Here at Environmental Services, we work very hard to provide citizens with a clean city. But with only five people organizing education, outreach and waste management efforts for the entire City of Frisco, it is truly up to Frisco’s own citizens to take an active role in cleaning and greening their home.

Thanks,

Molly Kinson
Environmental Education Coordinator
