Over 4,200 volunteers headed out on Saturday, April 11th to help remove litter, beautify green spaces, and share in a day of service. Information about total number of trash and recycling are still making their way in, but we currently estimate over 27 tons of litter was removed from Austin! Here are a few highlights from around the city.
