How can you help protect our local streams and lakes?
To prevent household pollutant from entering storm drains, there are several actions Mesquite residents can take, such as taking all household chemicals to the Dallas County Home Chemical Collection Center, picking up litter, and preventing yard waste from entering our waterways.
Keep Mesquite Beautiful hosts several clean up events annually where individuals and groups can participate in Mesquite’s Clean City Initiative to help keep neighborhoods and waterways free of trash and debris. The initiative is aimed at educating, enforcing, and engaging the community in litter reduction, for a cleaner, beautiful Mesquite. Residents can sign up for the community clean up event known as Trash Bash at this link: https://www.cityofmesquite.com/3414/Trash-Bash.
