A red, white and blue roadside trash can that the Texas Department of Transportation used for the “Don't Mess With Texas” anti-litter campaign last year is shown.

Residents can neaten up their patch of Denton or help tidy up someone else’s between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday, when Keep Denton Beautiful dispatches troops of litter-picker-uppers for the Great American Cleanup.

Anyone who has not registered should report to the Denton Civic Center, 321 E. McKinney St., for site assignments and supplies at 9 a.m. Saturday. Volunteers will clean up their sites from 9 to 11 a.m.

The network of cleanups will end with a volunteer party and environmental fair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Denton Civic Center. Volunteers can enjoy a free lunch, live music, kids’ bounce house, environmental activities and door prizes.

In conjunction with the Great American Cleanup, the Denton Solid Waste and Recycling Department will have a free disposal event for Denton residents who provide proof of residency. Hours will be 7 a.m. to noon at the landfill, 1527 S. Mayhill Road.
