TEXARKANA — The city of Texarkana, Texas and Texas A&M University-Texarkana will host “The Big Event” on April 9, which is a huge cleanup effort that will take place as part of the “Don’t Mess with Texas Trash Off.”

The event will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and it will include a day of service where students, faculty, staff, alumni and families unite to extend a helping hand to the community. The event provides an opportunity for residents to help clean up their area roadways and beautify the community.

The kickoff for The Big Event will start at 7:00 a.m. at the U.S. Post Office/Courthouse at 500 North State Line Ave., and the street around the building will be closed at that time for opening festivities.

The city of Texarkana, Texas will host beautification projects at four sites across town. These include Beverly, Rosehill, New Town and the Texarkana Public Library. There will be a roll-off dumpster at each location and residents are invited to drop off bulk waste and trash (excluding electronics, paint, tires, batteries, and other hazardous waste).

Here are the locations for the four sites:
