KHB Board Member and City of Houston Clean City Commissioner Alan Steinberg met with Precious Plastic UH https://preciousplasticuh.com to lean more about the University of Houston Industrial Design students-run plastic recycling workspace and make a guitar pick from recycled materials.

Keep Houston Beautiful worked with the group to get a grant for their plastic shredder and getting the program started.

Did you know the numbers on your plastics have an important meaning? Think "Paint by Numbers" but with recyclables!😃

Found inside the triangle recycling symbol on your plastics, these numbers tell you what type of plastic is being used, whether your item is recyclable or not, and which plastic items are single use or safe for reuse! This makes sorting your plastic easier and keeps you and your family safe from potential toxins.

Check out this quick and easy plastic identification reference guide we put together for you and your family👉

We love seeing Houstonians preserving the city and keeping it beautiful - so don't forget to tag us in your recycling and trash clean-up photos and keep an eye out for more recycling info coming this week!

"Look, this is Houston: when we work together we're able to do great things." - Mayor Sylvester Turner

This year at the 36th Annual Mayor's Proud Partnership Awards, Keep Houston Beautiful honored cross-generational Houstonians who inspire others, take action, and make Houston a cleaner, more beautiful place to live.

Brandon Allen Jr. (@recyclewithme.world on Instagram) made history as our youngest award recipient ever! His passion for climate change, recycling, and polar bears - especially at his young age - truly, truly inspires us all.

Additionally, the 2021 Mayor's Outstanding Proud Partner recipient, Ruby Jewell Bennett, has been a part of beautifying Houston for multiple decades. It was a treat to listen to the fond memories and stories the mayor and Ruby Jewell Bennett share.

Keep Houston Beautiful is honored to know all of the proud partners, council members, chair-people, city workers, caterers, and KHB staff who worked hard to make this this historical event happen.

We can't wait to see y'all next year!♻️🌿🏆

Ten years ago this week the Westbury Community garden sprang to life as part of Keep America Beautiful' s Great American Clean up. Thanks KHB! . #nationalgardeningday

Is there any way to get the city of houston to stop mowing garbage (that could be picked up) into smaller pieces of garbage? I see it happening all over town. (video from at Main and Cleburne)
Thank you KHB for loaning us to the tool to have a successful community cleanup in partnership with YES Prep Lawndale and Greater East End Management District. Together, we de-littered 2 miles of hike and bike trails and lifted 50 trees that was blocking trail access.
Eastwood Park Phase 2 beautification was a huge success thanks to so many members of the local community, Luz del Mundo, Greater East End Management District, many awesome City of Houston employees, and Keep Houston Beautiful. Councilwoman Cisneros was excited to see the renewal of a 1930s park that is very heavily utilized by the local neighborhoods and churches. Looking forward to the next phases.

The Shape Community Center and the Blackshear Elementary projects had a great turnout, lots of energy, live music, and fun. The surrounding four blocks had at least 75+volunteers.
