Don’t Mess With Texas Litter Contest
Keep Pearland Beautiful is hosting a summer contest in conjunction with Keep Texas Beautiful and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
KPB applied for and received two DMWT trashcans from TxDOT. Each week, KPB will be placing one can at a location on the Westside and one can at a location on the Eastside of Pearland. If you find the can, take a photo of yourself throwing away a piece of trash. Then, like Keep Pearland Beautiful on Facebook and upload the photo to our page.
The participant(s) who find the most cans and upload the most photos will win a Casa Ole Fajita party for 6. In case of a tie there will be drawing of one winner. One entry, per can, per week. There is one can at two separate locations per week for a maximum of two entries per week. There will an additional drawing for two – $25 gift cards from Casa Ole!
So, keep checking out Facebook page for updates on location of the two cans. Deadline to get all photos posted to our Facebook page is August 19, 2013.
Good luck and thank you for keeping Pearland beautiful!
