Electronic Recycling Roundup and Document Shredding Event - NEW LOCATION - ROWLETT HIGH SCHOOL PARKING LOT

October 25, 2014

Are you ready to get space at home by getting rid of your old, outdated, electronics? Bring them to us! Any items that you drop off will be reused, recycled, or safely disposed of.

Acceptable items include printers, copiers, phones, fax machines, computers, monitors, scanners, TVs, games, batteries...and much more! Almost anything that runs on electricity.  We are also collecting eyeglasses.

There will be an onsite, mobile, document shredding truck sponsored by Atmos Energy, so bring all of those old files and papers that have been stacking up (first 3 file boxes free, $3 per box thereafter, 7 box limit).  Please, no magazines or newspapers.

A drop off location will be set up in Rowlett High School parking lot. For information, contact Keep Rowlett Beautiful at info@keeprowlettbeautiful.org.

KRB Awards Neighborhood Grant

Congratulations to Sherri Jones and all of the volunteers who worked so hard to beautify the University Place Neighborhood Entryway in Rowlett.
This group raised over $2,000 for their project and received a $1,000 Entryway Grant from
KRB Neighborhood Beautification Grant Committee Chairperson, Zabrina Martinson, in recognition of their efforts.
Sherri says that they plan to use the grant money to maintain and even expand their project. Great job, University Place!


 

 

 

For more than two decades, Keep Texas Beautiful, in partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), has awarded the prestigious Governor's Community Achievement Awards (GCAA) to ten Texas communities with the best grassroots environmental programs in the state each year.

The competition distributes $2 million in funding from TxDOT across the ten communities, with the amount based on population size. The funds are used for landscaping projects along local rights-of-way. A community’s environmental program is judged on achievements in seven different areas: community leadership and coordination, public awareness, education, beautification and community improvement, litter prevention and cleanup, solid waste management and litter law and illegal dumping enforcement.

On June 24, 2014, Keep Rowlett Beautiful will receive the $250,000 award as first place winner in Category 7 at the Keep Texas Beautiful Annual Conference in Austin, TX. 

 

 

Schrade Middle School Plants Lowe's Demonstration Garden

On November 16, 2013,  Schrade Middle School science teacher, Paul Reyna, his students, Lowe's Heroes, and Keep Rowlett Beautiful volunteers planted a native, adaptive, and drought tolerant Demonstration Garden on the Schrade campus, made possible by a grant provided by Lowes through Keep Texas Beautiful. The demonstration garden is the latest addition to Mr. Reyna's outdoor environmental learning center at Schrade.  Students and Rowlett citizens alike are invited to go by and check out this beautiful garden.  Who knows, you may even pick up a few ideas for plantings in your own garden!  If your group or club would like to schedule a tour of the garden, just give us a call at Keep Rowlett Beautiful, 9am-1pm, M-F except holidays. Contact: Martha Brown, 972-463-3929.
