City of Andrews, TX

Loop 1910 Beautification Program



Loop 1910 Beautification Program
Objective:  To keep Loop 1910 beautiful by partnering with organizations who “adopt” approximately 2 miles of roadway along Loop 1910 that they voluntarily clean at least quarterly (every three months).

  • Participating organizations will have a sign with the organization’s name installed directly under one of the City’s Keep Andrews Beautiful signs at each end of their adopted area. 
  • Participating organizations will be responsible for both sides of the road and any intersections that are in the area. 
  • Keep Andrews Beautiful will provide trash bags and grabbers.  Safety vests and cotton gloves will be made available upon request.
  • Participating organizations are not required to schedule their time, however, we do ask that a log be kept of actual hours worked cleaning the adopted area.  The City will provide the forms necessary to track hours volunteered. 
  • All volunteers are required to sign a waiver form before performing any work.  The City also encourages all volunteers to be aware of the potential hazards they may encounter while volunteering in the Loop 1910 Beautification Program. 
  • The City’s Community Outreach Coordinator will be the primary contact person.

Loop 1910 Beautification Program
Volunteer Responsibilities

Individuals volunteering to help in the Loop 1910 Beautification Program are responsible for litter control in a designated area assigned to their group or organization. By performing this task, volunteers also encourage litter prevention as people are less likely to litter in areas that are clean.

The Process:

  • Volunteers are expected to pick up litter, secure it in plastic bags, and place the bags in the preferred designated location. The preferred designated location is beside the pole with the KAB sign and your group’s sign. However, if bags become too heavy to carry please leave by any sign or on the edge of--but not on--the Loop.
  • When it is safe to do so, volunteers should move large debris to the preferred designated area.
  • Volunteers should report large debris too large to move to the Community Outreach Coordinator (COC).

Safety First!

  • Before starting a project, every volunteer is encouraged to watch a safety video produced by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). While some of the content is not applicable to the Loop 1910 program, the safety advise contained in the video makes the video worth watching. This video can be located at the following link:   https://youtu.be/oDgWq2AyH7U
  •  Any safety concerns should be directed to the COC, Michael Rosales, at (432) 631-2711.
  • We strongly recommend every volunteer wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, leather shoes or boots, a hat, and sunglasses.
  • Volunteers should always wear a bright-colored safety vest. The City can provide these if requested.
  • Be aware of surrounding hazards. Loop 1910 is a truck route. Large trucks and other vehicles are your number one hazard. Slips, trips, and falls can happen anywhere so always be alert and aware of your surroundings. Take extra precaution when on a steep incline, which can be found in several places on the Loop. Also be watchful for snakes, ants, spiders, and other insects.
  • Volunteers should report any accidents to the COC at (432) 631-2711.
