DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS/GREAT AMERICAN CLEANUP: In affiliation and partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful, we offer the opportunity to our citizens to come out and clean up our community in April. This is usually held on the first Saturday of April, but it has been subject to change on rare instances.
EARTH DAY CELEBRATION: Earth Day is officially celebrated on April 22. Keep Odessa Beautiful celebrates Earth Day on the Saturday before or after (whichever is closest).
NATIONAL DRUG-TAKE BACK DAY: is celebrated on April 30 or the closest Saturday. We have partnered with the Odessa Police Department, the City of Odessa and the Drug Enforcement Administration to dispose of any outdated, unused prescription drugs and vitamins (for humans and our furry friends). Your identity will remain anonymous. Keep Odessa Beautiful strives to keep our community clean, including our water table beneath the earth. By keeping it out of the landfill and not flushing the substances down the toilet, we are able to dispose of these items properly AND NO ONE WILL KNOW WHO or WHAT you were disposing of.
ON-GOING EDUCATIONAL VISITS: Keep Odessa Beautiful believes in our mission" to empower individuals to take greater responsibility for enhancing their community environment." We do this through educating our community, all generations. We are always excited to speak to our youth at schools, summer camps, and child care centers. We also enjoy speaking to Civic Organizations. We always bring goodies, no matter the size of the group. To schedule one of our staff to speak to your group, simply call the office, 432-335-4686.
HOURS: Aside from all of our volunteer opportunities, Keep Odessa Beautiful is approved to give Texas Scholar Hours as well as Community Service Hours.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY: In affiliation and partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful, we offer the opportunity to our citizens to come out and clean up our community in October. This is usually held on the first Saturday of October, but it has been subject to change on rare instances.
TEXAS RECYCLES DAY: Texas Recycles Day is usually celebrated on the second Saturday of November. Keep Odessa Beautiful celebrates Texas Recycles Day at the Odessa Recycle Time Machine. This is our big day to accept items such as electronics, white appliances, etc. We give you a chance to clean out your garages and attics and have a way to dispose of the items properly.
