The East End District recently partnered with the students and teachers of YES Prep East End to canvass the Magnolia Park community with door hangers. The door hangers educated residents of garbage, recycling, and tree/junk waste guidelines and specified their heavy trash pick-up day. The students and teachers were also joined by Council Member Robert Gallegos and his staff, representatives from the Department of Neighborhoods, Harris County Precinct 6, Houston Police Department, BARC, City of Houston Solid Waste. The event was additionally sponsored by Space City Credit Union and Frost Bank.
Gathering at Hidalgo Park and heading out on foot, the over 400 participating students and support team placed 2,200 door hangers and used the opportunity to clean up trash across 210 blocks in the community. A total of 200 bags of litter were collected.
