Are you tired of seeing trash along your city streets? Do you cringe when you see someone throw litter out a car window onto the highway? Does litter really bug you? If so, this is the event for you!

The City of Lawton and the Lawton Enhancement Trust Authority is hosting the annual "Trash-Off" event in Lawton on Saturday, April 26th. Hundreds of volunteers will hit the streets to clean up the city. The event is coordinated from the McMahon Memorial Auditorium parking lot. It begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning. If you would like to volunteer to help just show up at the McMahon parking lot and look for the volunteer table.

Goodwill Industries will be on site to collect donations as well.  The city has a list of items they will accept (or not accept) on their website.  Here is a link to the list.

If you have any questions contact Anthony Griffith at (580) 581-3467 or 3591, or email at

TRASH-OFF is the Department of Transportation’s statewide cleanup day. Many groups have expanded TRASH-OFF Day into TRASH-OFF week, or even TRASH-OFF month! Cities often participate by arranging free dump days or curbside pickups. Many groups combine cleanups with other fun events such as picnics, contests or trash parades to encourage participation. All events are coordinated statewide efforts to "KEEP OUR LAND GRAND"!
