Anti-Litter Campaign

Nichol's Landing
Nichol's Landing

What if 100,000 people each picked up one piece of litter every day? What would that look like and what would that mean to Canyon Lake and the Guadalupe River.

Every summer at the Guadalupe River, hundreds of thousands of tubers make millions of beautiful memories but leave over 75,000 pounds of trash. Over $500,000 of WORD funds are spent on trash cleanup every year.

The anti-litter campaign works toward a litter-free river, lake, and community by educating individuals and providing opportunities to reduce litter. Each component of our anti-litter campaign is a tool to help fulfill our mission. We hope by encouraging everyone to stash their trash we can Keep Comal County Clean!
