Keep Henderson Beautiful members present were Bobby and Deanna Wooley, who said their goal is “to make Rusk County the cleanest, most beautiful county in Texas.”

Individuals can take old household appliances (with Freon removed), litter, leaves, and brush to their local collection sites that day at no charge. Automobile tires will be accepted for a fee.  Commercial tires will not be accepted at any precinct collection site.
