According to the City of Las Cruces website, the City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department’s Keep Las Cruces Beautiful, along with New Mexico Clean and Beautiful, will host the 23rd annual Toss No Mas campaign. As part of the campaign, hundreds of volunteers will collect litter at parks, schools, streets and business properties throughout the city.

Last year, 1,100 volunteers that included 65 local groups and organizations, collected more than 15 tons of litter during the annual event previously known as Trek for Trash.

Individual volunteers, groups, and civic organizations are encouraged to register before Oct. 9, for this year’s Toss No Mas campaign, which is a great opportunity to show pride in Las Cruces.
