Don't Mess With Texas!

Somebody's been messin' with Texas!

KCB conducted a Keep America Beautiful Litter Survey in 2011. There was a small amount of litter near fast food businesses and HEB. With the coming of the Eagleford Shale Oil and Gas exploration and production, litter has become a major concern.

This littering has been devastating both in town and along the lanes and byways formerly covered in a myriad of Texas wildflowers. Styrofoam and paper food containers, cups, napkins fill the ditches, hang on fences and paint a sorrow picture of what was pristine landscapes. Churches and civic clubs pick up the litter quarterly, but as fast as the roadside is cleaned..more litter takes its place. The next survey will take place in April.

During the Great American Cleanup, the City of Cuero has a Spring City-Wide Cleanup to collect brush, cast-off furniture and other household items. The City crews recently cleaned the area behind the Velaro Station adjacent to WalMart. KCB is still working toward finding a solution to the litter problem.

Between March 1 and May 31, KCB participates in a "Don't Mess with Texas" highway cleanup and a Texas Waterways Cleanup and the Great American Cleanup.
