We're Keeping Sugar Land Beautiful!

Keep Sugar Land Beautiful believes that each person is responsible for the environmental health of our community. Your daily habits, choices and actions collectively have a huge impact on our community. It's really a simple concept, but one with far reaching effects. We believe you can make a difference.

Keep Sugar Land Beautiful follows a practical approach that unites citizens, businesses and government to find solutions that advance our core issues of reducing waste, preventing litter, conserving clean water, and beautifying communities.


Keep Sugar Land Beautiful, The City of Sugar Land, and Town Square invite you to join us for Sugar Land's Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 16, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the Plaza at Town Square.
