Keep Kingsland Beautiful holding cleanup of RR 1431

JARED FIELDS • PICAYUNE STAFF

KINGSLAND — You bring the work gloves, Keep Kingsland Beautiful will provide trash bags and reflective vests

Together, two miles of RR 1431 between Kingsland Hills Care Center and the Lake LBJ bridge will be picked clean Sept. 14.

“We have a core of 12 to 15 volunteers and a dozen or so who can be counted on to show up for any given cleanup,” Keep Kingsland Beautiful president Melissa Eddy said.

For this cleanup, however, Eddy said she hopes to have double the help to beautify the stretch of road starting at 8 a.m.

Volunteers can meet at the Prosperity Bank parking lot on the corner of RR 1431 and RR 2900. The cleanup is expected to last between two and three hours.

Keep Kingsland Beautiful is a nonprofit organization formed in 2012 that works on a number of projects in the community. Volunteers keep trash bins at the Llano River slab to keep the area clean and have worked with landowners to clean their property and lots.

Recognized by the Texas Department of Transportation as adopter of this roadway, Keep Kingsland Beautiful cleans the roadway every three months.

Reservations for the adopt-a-highway cleanup are not needed. Go to keepkingslandbeautiful.org for more information.
