“In 2007, the city suffered from the ravages of a devastating flood...In the aftermath, Keep Grapevine Beautiful stepped up...This was the most cohesive, incredible grassroots project ever accomplished and one that will make our citizens proud to live in Grapevine and be part of this unique community.”

Litter Prevention & Cleanup
The slogan "Give a hoot, don't pollute!" may be old, but it is still appropriate and one we take to heart. Keep Grapevine Beautiful is both proactive in trying to prevent litter, and reactive by organizing cleanup efforts. Whether it is along the freeways, roadways, parks or lake, a litter-free community is one of our most important goals.
Research and experience have shown that litter is the result of individual behavior—choosing to litter or being careless in the handling of waste. And once litter is on the ground, it attracts more litter. A clean community, by contrast, can discourage littering and improve community appearance and quality of life. You have a role to play in preventing litter. It takes just one person, one school, one business, one organization to positively impact the behavior of others in their community.
