Join the City of Mansfield, Keep Mansfield Beautiful and Keep Texas Beautiful by participating in the Mansfield 2021 Fall Sweep Cleanup and Mayor's Litter Challenge. All residents, families and groups are invited to participate in picking up litter beginning Sept. 1 through Oct. 31.

This year’s event will not be a traditional gathering; however, volunteers are invited to pick up litter at locations throughout Mansfield.

Choose your own public location anywhere within Mansfield city limits, keeping in mind that safety is the primary concern. Do not enter private property without permissions from the owner. Be mindful of traffic flow, sidewalks and consider wearing bright colored clothing to increase visibility and safety.

It is suggested that groups are limited to individuals,  family units or "social bubbles" of no more than six to 10. Please follow current local and state recommendations concerning COVID-19 as this situation changes on a regular basis.

To register, request free trash grabbers, trash bags and gloves, and schedule a contactless supply pick up, fill out this form.

Dispose of your filled trash bags with your residential curbside trash on your normally scheduled trash pick up days. Remember that gloves and disposable masks should be thrown away, not recycled.

When you finish your cleanup, complete this form and submit a picture of your cleanup. Groups who submit cleanup reports will receive recognition by the City and on the Keep Mansfield Beautiful Facebook page.
