Clean the Creek is a student-run not for profit environmental organization that works to motivate citizens to do their own part in preserving the environment. Clean the Creek does this via two methods;
1)Hosting litter clean-ups along polluted water systems, and
2) By leading hazardous household waste (HHW) pick-ups, which recycle toxic materials that go largely unrecycled.
Clean the Creek provides free hazardous waste pick ups to residents of Austin because this service is not provided by the city.
We believe that this is a very necessary service, however, because many residents do not properly dispose of these toxic materials, and the environment has to bear the burden.
Clean the Creek has a simple goal, keep what is currently there there for the future. Helping out the environment is easier than you think.
