Keep Austin Beautiful Happenings

Year after year, we are amazed by the many environmental projects taking place across Austin. What projects most impress you? Tell us! We want to celebrate the amazing environmental leaders completing these projects by honoring them with a Keep Austin Beautiful Award. Nominate someone you know or apply on your own behalf. Applications are due November 24th.
We are ramping up all our efforts in a targeted geographic zone for the whole year. Imagine what we can accomplish if we come together to complete large-scale service projects, plant trees, sow native seeds, organize cleanups, adopt miles of streets and creeks, and engage students all in one community...

Mary Jane Sims Elementary has been selected as the 2014 Zero-Waste Champions, an award presented by Keep Austin Beautiful in partnership with Austin Resource Recovery and the Bleed Orange Live Green initiative.
During the 2013-2014 school year, the entire fourth grade participated in the Generation Zero program to learn about recycling and composting, and Sims boasts the highest rate of recycling and composting -- more than 20 pounds per student. Recognition of the school was featured on CityView, Austin Independent School District webpage, and on Fox Austin.
