The annual Keep Flower Mound Beautiful Trash-Off will look a little different this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead of a large event gathering for the community clean-up, this year it will take place over the course of three days, Sept. 25-27, at pre-assigned locations to ensure volunteers are spread out, according to a news release from the town of Flower Mound. Pre-registration is required and locations will be pre-assigned. Giveaways and prizes will be awarded for the most trash, recyclables and oddest item collected. All ages are welcome to participate. Supplies for the community clean-up can be picked up at Flower Mound Town Hall, 2121 Cross Timbers Road, beginning Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Recycling Drop Off portion of the annual event will take place on Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Flower Mound High School parking lot, 3411 Peters Colony Road. Attendees can drop off their electronics to be recycled, have their documents shredded with Shred-It, and Recycle2Support (benefiting CCA) will collect gen­tly-used houseware items, textile, and clothing donations. In addition, pens, mechanical pencils, markers, plastic bags and film, razors, blades, and wire hangers will also be collected.
