Have you seen our wooden boxes on the sand with free trash bags inside? The bags are for your taking!
Please, take a free trash bag and fill it up before leaving the beach today. We encourage you to throw the trash away in a blue barrel and keep the bag for a second use.
As stewards of the environment, the Park Board would like to encourage everyone who steps foot on the sand to be conscious of the impact they leave behind.
Up2U Clean Rivers and Beaches Litter Prevention Campaign
For this reason, the Nueces River Authority's Up2U Litter Prevention Campaign was brought to the beaches of Galveston in the form of free trash bags for the public to use. The Up2U Clean Rivers and Beaches Litter Prevention Campaign was created by the Nueces River Authority in 2004 to advocate for personal responsibility for environmental protection.
