The Town of Frisco is gearing up to participate in the Countywide Town Clean Up Day on Saturday, May 21, 2022, with a return to its traditional in-person one day format after two years of holding the event over the course of a week with independent trash pickup in order to support physical distancing. The event is a chance for community members to get together after a two year pause to clean up neighborhoods, parks, open spaces, business areas, and trails around Frisco in anticipation of summer. Volunteer check in is at 9:00 am at the Frisco Historic Park on Frisco Main Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues.
During the volunteer check in at 9:00 am, there will be coffee provided by Starbucks and baked treats. At that time, volunteers will also receive gloves, orange trash bags, and tickets for door prize drawings, lunch, and free beers for those over 21 or non-alcoholic drinks. Volunteers may ask to be assigned to a cleanup area, or they may select an area in Frisco that they feel would benefit from their efforts.
Post cleanup, participants are invited back to the Frisco Historic Park for an appreciation BBQ with food grilled up by Frisco Town Council and music provided by DJ Landry. The volunteer appreciation BBQ will also include volunteer door prizes and awards from appreciative local merchants for the most valuable, most unique, and grossest finds of the day.
Support from Local Businesses:
The Town invites businesses to support the Town of Frisco Clean Up Day picnic and highlight their business to the locals who support and recommend them. All types of donations are appreciated, including:
- Gift certificates
- Item donations for door prizes

Businesses who donate will have their name displayed on a large thank you-poster at the event, along with verbal acknowledgment on the stage during the picnic. Businesses are also invited to bring their staff to participate in the cleanup efforts.
