Trash or Treat
Join us for Trash or Treat on Saturday, Oct. 31! Trash or Treat combines our annual Fall Waterways Cleanup with a fun drive-thru event to celebrate Halloween and thank cleanup participants for helping keep Plano waste free.
Litter cleanups take place city wide on Saturday, Oct. 31 during morning hours that you determine. Two hours of volunteering would be wicked helpful, but is not required. Cleanup groups and sites are limited to 10 people. The entire event is limited to 500 participants so register as soon as possible!
Contactless supply pickup will take place on Thursday, Oct. 29 and Friday, Oct. 30 at the Environmental Education Center (4116 W Plano Pkwy.). Don’t forget your mask!
About Trash or Treat
For this drive-thru event, City departments provide cleanup volunteers with a fun and safe way to celebrate Halloween while learning how we all keep Plano clean and green. There will be (sanitized) giveaways and fun activities to do – all from a safe social distance. This includes a costume contest for both you and your dog, so remember to bring your pups along for the ride!
The event will take place at Windhaven Meadows Park (5400 Windhaven Pkwy.) from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. While filling out the cleanup registration form, volunteers will have the opportunity to sign up for certain time slots to attend the event. This will help us maintain health guidelines and reduce traffic.

About Fall Waterways Cleanup
The Fall Waterways Cleanup event began in 2017 as a way to focus cleanup efforts on the creeks throughout Plano. When it comes to litter, waterways are typically where we see the biggest problems. Any excess water on our streets collects litter as it flows down to storm drains and continues on to our creeks. Also, any trash that has made its way to waterways in areas to the north will eventually flow to Plano. These two issues combined create huge amounts of litter in our waterways.
Cleanup events, like the Fall Waterways Cleanup and the monthly creek cleanups, can help make Plano a cleaner and greener space. This not only benefits our residents and local wildlife, but all of the waterways our creeks eventually flow into, like the Trinity River and even the Gulf of Mexico.
