The City of Pflugerville was recognized as Gold Star Affiliate by Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB), a statewide grassroots environmental and community improvement non-profit organization, for the third year in a row. This designation was granted to 85 affiliates of KTB’s nearly 300 affiliates, and is the highest membership status an affiliate community can achieve. The Gold Star recognizes affiliates that go above and beyond the mission of Keep Texas Beautiful, and make a significant impact in their community. seniors picking picking up trash

To achieve this high standard, City of Pflugerville employees organized educational and volunteer programs including Arbor Day tree plantings, Nature Pfest, Drop by Drop, Adopt-a-Trail, Clean-up Day, water conservation programs, rain barrel sales and more.

These programs are only possible through the partnership and support from other community organizations, including PfISD, Rotary Club, American Legion, local businesses, churches and clubs that spent 15,762 hours volunteering in the Pflugerville community in 2018.

The Keep Pflugerville Beautiful committee is comprised of staff from Parks and Recreation and Public Works dedicated to conservation. To find out more about conservation programs in the City of Pflugerville, visit https://utilitybilling.pflugervilletx.gov/water-conservation/conservation-programs.
