Flower Mound High School cheerleaders Mallory Moss, Parker Lenheiser, Ian Bode, Rhys Hartsough, Megan Bode and Cassie Baker participated in the annual Keep Flower Mound Beautiful Spring Trash Off on Saturday.
The crew, along with parents and booster club members, collected five bags of trash and three bags of recyclable items from along Peters Colony Road and Quail Run Road, including the area next to their high school.
A total of 282 people registered for the Keep Flower Mound Beautiful (KFMB) trash pick-up event, including 81 scouts, 36 children, 34 teens, and 131 adults, according to Marilyn Lawson with KFMB.
“As a group we managed to remove 1,640 lbs of trash and 1,360 lbs of recycles from our parks, trails, and roadways. We also removed a number of tires and other objects that would not fit into bags,” said Lawson.
Lawson said that 9,500 lbs of paper was shredded by Cintas.
The American Heritage Girls Troop 1171 collected the most bags of trash and Explorations Preparatory School had the most bags of recyclables, collected during their clean up of the south end of Murrell Park. Both groups earned a pizza party from KFMB.
An autographed baseball was presented to Dulcinea Arredondo for bringing in the most unusual or largest items, which was a post and a pallet.
