That's why "Keep Abilene Beautiful" is holding it's annual "trash-off" on April 6 as part of a statewide cleanup day.
While organizers agree that one day might not make the most noticeable difference, tthey say it's a step in the right direction..
Last year, more than 300 volunteers turned up to pick up trash around town and organizers are hoping to top that number this year.
You can sign up on KeepAbileneBeautiful.org.
The cleanup day is Saturday, April 6 at 8 in the morning.
Volunteers will meet at the K-Mart parking lot before being sent off to different areas.
