Wells Branch MUD became an affiliate of Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) two years ago. KTB is a statewide 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to beautifying and improving community environments through programming and education; we address the areas of litter prevention, community beautification and waste reduction. We work with affiliate communities, government agencies, businesses, civic groups, and volunteers to ensure that every Texan has the opportunity to make Texas the cleanest, most beautiful state in the nation. KTB is also a certified state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful.
Their MISSION statement is to educate and engage Texans to take responsibility for improving their community environment. We do this through programming and education, addressing our three focus areas: Litter prevention, Beautification and Waste Reduction
KTB has the largest environmental and community improvement network in the state, comprised of more than 360 community affiliates, which have the potential to educate upwards of 19 million Texans.
Affiliates are qualifying cities, counties and/or communities that work alongside us in our mission to educate and engage Texans to take responsibility for improving their communities. These organizations are comprised of volunteers who organize local cleanups, design and implement recycling programs, and educate local populations about issues like sustainability and water quality. KTB affiliates are as diverse as they are dedicated; some are all-volunteer organizations while others have a paid staff. Some are a recognized arm of local government while others originate in church groups or youth organizations. No community is too big or too small – the coastal town of Quintana has a population of less of about 100 full time residents, while Dallas County has more than two million.
Affiliates not only organize local events and programs based on their community's needs, but also participate in KTB-sponsored programs such as Great American Cleanup and Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off. The collective success of such events is staggering; in 2010, more than 94,000 individuals volunteered for the Great American Cleanup, representing 1,535 Texas communities. More than 13.5 million pounds of litter was collected and 7,190 miles of Texas road.
Affiliates recruit volunteers from all walks of life – from elementary students to garden clubs, service organizations to master naturalists – to aid in grassroots efforts to improve the environment. The thread that runs through each and every affiliate is the desire to affect positive change in their communities.
In November of 2011 Keep Wells Branch Beautiful was awarded a H-E-B / Central Market / Keep Texas Beautiful Green Bag Recycling Grants! Keep Wells Branch MUD will use funding from our Green Bag Grant to purchase recycle bins for all of their facilities to help community recycle products. The bins will be placed in parks, pools, the recreation center, the community center and offices. Residents have curbside pick up for recycling, along with the Wells Branch MUD facilities, and the bins will assist with getting the recyclable products to the curb for pick up.
Northwest Elementary will be collecting plastic grocery bags and as an incentive for the students, those who choose to donate will receive STAR tickets. STAR tickets are based on school-wide expectations: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. Students earn these tickets for demonstrating any of the “3 B’s” and can turn them into the office in hopes of being recognized as the STAR student of the week.
