MIDLAND, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – Keep Midland Beautiful is gearing up for a fight! A fight against litter in the Tall City.

Eaden Lopez, the Keep Midland Beautiful Litter Prevention Coordinator said, “We want to take care of the environment. We want to take care of our home and that is one of our biggest things is to love where you live.”

You see it on the side of the highway on your way to work or in big fields, now, keep midland beautiful wants your help to clean it all up.

The city says some of the largest problem areas are near Big Spring Street and Fiesta Avenue. KMB hoped a 500 dollar fine would be enough to keep litterbugs at bay but now they’re offering a reward for the trash you do pick up!

“Tag us and use the ‘#KMBFunkyFind2020’ for a chance to win a 40$ gift certificate to Whataburger, a Whataburger Yeti cup, and also a gift basket,” said Lopez.

Keep Midland Beautiful hopes the contest to find the funkiest trash will help get Midlanders in the streets and cleaning up.

She said, “It’s actually from now all the way through November the 13th. You can participate at any time and Keep Midland Beautiful will provide you with all the clean-up supplies.

“Vests, gloves, trash bags, everything of that sort and we also do have some snacks and we are doing goodies for groups this year,” said the Litter Prevention Coordinator.
