Mother Nature gave the over 100 volunteers picking up trash and debris throughout DeSoto the perfect weather, not too hot and not too cold. Keeping the city clean is important for several reasons, including keeping debris out of area waterways. Surveys show homeowners, realtors, and business owners believe litter significantly decreases a property’s value and deters visitors.

Individual residents, families, community organizations, and numerous City officials took part in clean-ups in and around seven key locations in DeSoto and collected a total of more than 700 pounds of trash.
