Cuero residents band together to clean Cuero Lake

Posted: Updated:

Cuero residents, both young and old, banded together to clean up Cuero Lake Thursday evening. The clean up is part of the Keep Cuero Beautiful program, which works with community partners to keep the city free of litter. President Linda Henderson says the community's role in the clean up is just as important as the clean up itself. 

"Well if you don't clean up litter, it multiplies and it begets litter. So we take the responsibility of, not just the lake, but the amenities around the lake. And, it's really gratifying when you see little kids come out and, I think, their education, they see the need to clean up."

In total, about two hundred and forty pounds of litter were collected during today's clean up. 

About Keep Cuero Beautiful

Keep Cuero Beautiful's mission is to create a more beautiful, healthier, cleaner community and to encourage the conservation and preservation of natural resources through educational programs, projects, printed material, and social media. 

This littering has been devastating both in town and along the lanes and byways formerly covered in a myriad of Texas wildflowers. Styrofoam and paper food containers, cups, napkins fill the ditches, hang on fences and paint a sorrow picture of what was pristine landscapes. Churches and civic clubs pick up the litter quarterly, but as fast as the roadside is cleaned..more litter takes its place.

During the Great American Cleanup, the City of Cuero has a Spring City-Wide Cleanup to collect brush, cast-off furniture and other household items. The City crews recently cleaned the area behind the Velaro Station adjacent to WalMart. KCB is still working toward finding a solution to the litter problem.
