What You Can Do
Keep Allen Beautiful hopes to improve the lives of Allen residents by encouraging recycling, water conservation and other practices that protect the environment.

Here's how you can take care of Allen:
  • Do not litter.
  • Keep household chemicals such as engine oils, paint thinners, and pesticides out of sewers, septic tanks and storm drains; use carefully and dispose of them properly.
  • Landscape with native Texas plants.
  • Make earth-friendly choices during the holiday season, when waste typically increases 25%.
  • Recycle at home, school and work.
  • Save water by watering early in the morning or late in the evening.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rebuy!
Each year humans generate enough garbage to fill a convoy of trash trucks reaching halfway to the moon! You can help solve our garbage problem by following the four R's:

  1. Reduce: Buy in bulk. Choose products with less packaging.
  2. Reuse: Bring your own cloth bag to the grocery store. Donate used items to organizations that will reuse them.
  3. Recycle: Recycle paper; plastic 1,2,3,4,5,7; metals and glass.
  4. Rebuy: Buy products made from recycled materials.
