Keep West Tawakoni Beautiful, begun in January of 2014, is a group of volunteers dedicated to promote the Keep Texas Beautiful program of litter prevention, beautification and community involvement and minimize the impact of solid waste in the city’s water service area and is a KAB affiliate in good standing.

Ongoing projects include Yard of the Month recognition for local residents and starting this fall, community improvement awards to recognize non-residential properties in the area, and maintaining the Little Library in the City Park, which they sponsor as part of the countywide effort of United Way of Hunt County.

Past projects include spring and fall cleanups at the sewer plant and they continue to man the dumpsters at the sewer plant on several Saturdays to allow people to bring bulky trash there for disposal. They also have cleaned up the rose garden and the Veterans Memorial at the City Park and created and planted new flower beds at the park’s entrance. The group also has just finished a project to redecorate the foyer at City Hall.

They currently are planning working on a project to establish “Welcome to West Tawakoni“ signs along Hwy. 276 at both ends of the city and planting wildflower seeds along Hwy. 276 and in City Park.

Spring and fall plant and yard art sales raise monies to fund their projects.

Current members are Kathie Magers, chair, Mary Hall, Margaret Johnson, Stella Travers, and Judi Varnes, with Dwayne Hall the city appointee. Anyone wishing to volunteer should contact City Hall.

Keep West Tawakoni Beautiful has redecorated the foyer of the West Tawakoni City Hall. They did an excellent job of choosing the colors and items.

West Tawakoni Dumpster Open Again on Saturday October 7th

September 5th, 2017|0 Comments

For the last time this year, the City of West Tawakoni and volunteers from Keep West Tawakoni Beautiful are teaming up to allow the city’s water service customers to dispose of bulky trash and brush at the city’s sewer plant Saturday, Oct. 7.
This will be the last Saturday availability until next spring.
KWTB volunteers will man the sewer plant on that Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon or until the dumpsters are full, to allow residents who are unable to make it to the site during weekday hours, to get rid of their outsized trash.

The site, regularly open Thursdays from 9 a.m. until noon and 1 to 3 p.m., is expected to close completely by mid-October and remain closed until next spring.
