What if 100,000 people each picked up one piece of litter every day?

What would that look like? What would that mean?

Have you been stopped by a smiling face in a polo? These guys are trying to help you “Stash Your Trash” to win giveaways! You will see them at the Horseshoe entrances and exits, as well as boat ramps, and Corp Parks. It’s simple: stash your trash, get free swag!

If you’re on the water between Memorial Day to Labor Day, take a selfie of you and your friends with your “stashed” trash and upload it to our social media page. Win prizes instantly by participating. You can help make a difference by keeping Comal County clean.

Mesh Bag Stations

WORD has partnered with Jack Robinson, an Eagle Scout from Canyon Lake, to create mesh bag receptacles at various locations throughout the District. These mesh bag stations allow visitors to grab a FREE mesh bag before heading to the water to recreate. Our mesh bags have the River and Lake Laws displayed in both English and Spanish. Grab, stash, and reduce trash!

Snark Signage

If you’re headed to the water you may have noticed our Snark Signs. These funny signs have been posted at popular locations to encourage our visitors to be mindful of their trash. When it comes to litter just remember you don’t want to be “that guy.”

Aggies, Longhorns Join the Fight to Stash Trash

In this new promotional video, area Aggies and Longhorns set aside their decades-long differences to “Stash Your Trash,” a campaign aimed at tackling the growing problem of trash in Canyon Lake, the Guadalupe River and along area roadways, parks and trails.

Recycling Program Expansion

This summer WORD has increased the recycling program by adding six additional businesses to this program.

Recycling Receptacles

Thanks to this program, recycling receptacles are placed and emptied on a regular basis at no cost to these campgrounds.

REDUCE, REUSE, & RECYCLE

We encourage our visitors to use these receptacles by placing cans, boxes, and other recyclable materials in these containers!
