Litter Free Zone Pledge

Litter is an eyesore and can be harmful to children, animals and the environment.  Research shows a strong link between litter and instances of crime.  It also gives the appearance that one does not care about where they live.

With this knowledge, I promise to help make Abilene a “Litter Free Zone” and will make every effort to:

  • Pick up and properly dispose of the litter around the outside of my home.
  • I will recycle whenever possible.
  • I will securely bag my trash and place my trash container at the curb on collection days only.
  • I will not throw cigarette butts on the ground.
  • And I will pick up and properly dispose of at least one piece of litter each day from a place other than my home.
