In Texas, over 362 million pieces of visible litter accumulate on roadways each year, according to TxDOT's 2019 Visible Litter Study. It is in our community, the sides of our roads, in our rivers, and along our beaches. Litter control efforts cost the American taxpayers over $11 billion each year.
Our Weatherford Mountain Bike Club (a non-profit that manages our local trails) has regularly identified specific areas that accumulate building trash in the Parks of Aledo Trails. There are other areas that do not have regular maintenance and clean up through our city.
