It’s time for the Great American Cleanup once again!
Spring is here, and there’s no better time for a community-wide cleanup to keep our city looking fresh! Gather your friends and family and join Keep Southlake Beautiful as we do our part in The Great American Cleanup. Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is part of a nationwide effort in more than 20,000 communities year-round.
Join us on Saturday, May 13, at the Parkwood Training Center at 9:00 AM for a morning of city beautification and community-building. Keep Southlake Beautiful staff will be on-site at the Parkwood Training Center (the old Senior Center) at 307 Parkwood Dr. early in the morning to provide your volunteer team with a light breakfast. Drink some coffee, eat a bagel, and collect your cleanup supplies and KSB swag!
This year’s cleanup sites include available streets from our Adopt-A-Street program! Once you eat breakfast and pick up your supplies, you will be assigned a road to clean up. Head over to that street to play your part in beautifying Southlake. Once done, meet us back at Parkwood to drop off your trash bags and return your supplies! It’ll be a great morning to give back and earn volunteer hours!

April is Earth Month, and there’s no better time to spring into action with Keep Southlake Beautiful to take care of our beloved community.
Keep Southlake Beautiful (KSB) is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for Southlake residents through green initiatives and beautification projects. KSB encourages everyone to do their part in making Southlake an environmentally friendly place to live, work, and play!
Are you ready to take your commitment to your community to the next level? Keep Southlake Beautiful has plenty of programs to enhance our sustainability and beautification efforts. Here are some ways you can get involved for Earth Month and beyond!
Adopt-A-Street is a free program that allows organizations, businesses, groups, families, and individuals to adopt and maintain areas within the Southlake community. Southlake is growing, and a surging population means more cars on the roadways and, unfortunately, more trash. Volunteer efforts reduce litter cleanup costs and save taxpayers money. Keep Southlake Beautiful encourages you to become a partner and adopt a street. Want to take ownership of a specific area? See a list of the available streets.
Keep Southlake Beautiful offers residents an opportunity to recycle their cell phones and ink cartridges in an environmentally friendly way. These green initiatives improve Southlake’s appearance and preserve and enhance our local natural environment. KSB encourages all citizens to participate in these recycling programs and help keep Southlake beautiful. Bring your old cell phones and used ink cartridges to the Community Services Department at 285 Shady Oaks Dr. to be recycled. Learn more about our recycling programs.

Let’s make the best of our Christmas Tree this season by repurposing it and turning it into mulch.
The City’s tree recycling program allows residents to easily dispose of their trees by turning them into wood chips that can be used for mulch for your garden or other purposes.
Recycling your Christmas tree not only helps the environment, but it is also an eco-friendly option to reduce waste that could otherwise go into the landfills.
Residents can drop off their tree and base at the Bicentennial Park exit off FM 1709 and follow the signs for drop-off location.
Program dates are as follows:
– Drop-off: December 11, 2020 – January 15, 2021
– Mulch pickup: January 18, 2021 or until mulch is no longer available
For questions, please call 817-748-8019 or visit the Keep Southlake Beautiful webpage. To learn more about how real Christmas trees benefit the environment, visit the National Christmas Tree Association website.
Give the gift of giving back…to the environment that is and recycle your Christmas tree.
Recycling your tree will reduce the amount of waste that goes to the landfills and is an environmentally friendly option.
Since real trees are biodegradable, they can be easily recycled for mulch or other eco-friendly purposes.
The City’s recycling program offers residents an easy way to dispose of their trees. Residents can drop off their bare trees at Bicentennial Park and the City will repurpose the trees by turning them into wood chips that can be used for mulch in and around flower beds or gardens.
To participate, bring your tree, minus the decorations and base to Bicentennial Park off of FM 1709.
Program Dates are as follows:
If you have any questions, please call 817-748-8019 or visit the Keep Southlake Beautiful page. For more information about how real Christmas trees benefit the environment, visit the National Christmas Tree Association website.
It’s that time of year again—time to order the street trees that will keep Southlake beautiful for generations to come. Trees will be available for purchase through January 31, 2019.
Trees are essential for a healthy ecosystem, but they also have a direct impact on our own health and well-being. They protect us from the blazing summer heat, mitigate air and water pollution, reduce stress and encourage people to get outside and stay active. The greener the community, the happier and healthier the residents!
The City of Southlake’s annual Street Tree Program is dedicated to keeping Southlake healthy and beautiful all year long. Through this program, Southlake residents can purchase a tree for half price with the City covering the remaining costs. The following four varieties of trees are available through the program:
Visit our website for more information. Trees will be planted in designated locations in late winter/early spring.
Trees can be purchased until January 31 either through the Parks and Recreation online portal or at the Community Services office (1400 Main Street, Suite 210). Only one tree per Southlake household.
To learn more about the City’s Street Tree Program and other Keep Southlake Beautiful initiatives, visit our website or call (817) 748-8019.
This year, instead of throwing your Christmas tree away once the holiday season is over, recycle it! Real Christmas trees are biodegradable, which means they can be easily recycled for mulch and other environmentally-friendly purposes. Recycling your tree also reduces the amount of waste that goes to local landfills.
Through the City of Southlake’s Christmas Tree Recycling Program, residents can drop off their bare trees at Bicentennial Park and the City will turn the trees into wood chips. Residents can then use the freshly-made mulch in and around their flower beds and gardens.
To participate in the 2017 Christmas Tree Recycling Program, bring your bare tree (without decorations or a base) to the Bicentennial Park entrance off FM 1709. Program dates are listed below.
Christmas Tree Drop-off: December 16 – January 12
Mulch Pickup: January 13 – January 19
If you have questions, call (817) 748-8019 or visit the Keep Southlake Beautiful page. For more information about how real Christmas trees benefit the environment, visit the National Christmas Tree Association website.
