FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Tidy Up Tomball is a bi-annual trash clean-up event designed to bring the community together to beautify the City of Tomball.

In 2023, local business owner Amanda Trickey noticed a growing litter problem in Tomball as the community expanded.

Raised with a strong sense of environmental responsibility from her youth and paired with inspiration from her involvement in The Big Event at Texas A&M University, she decided to take action.

Amanda proposed the idea of a community-driven trash clean-up event, aiming to instill a culture of cleanliness and responsibility.

With support from fellow business owner Jonetta Barnett, they met with Mayor Lori Klein Quinn to discuss the initiative. That same night, Amanda presented the idea to the Tomball City Council, and Tidy Up Tomball was born.

With swift action, a Board of Directors was formed, 501(c)(3) status was obtained, and Tidy Up Tomball held its inaugural event just 6 short months later in the fall of 2023 with 180 volunteers and 300lbs of trash picked up throughout the community. 

Huge thanks to the founding members who came together to make this initiative a reality including Jonetta Barnett, Brooke Cegielski, Amanda Coolidge, Florine Ellis, Elaine Hancock, Drew Huffman, Amanda Kelly, Emma Leatham, Meagan Mageo, Lori Klein Quinn, Nikki Ramon-Gross, Colleen Pye, Alena Strand, Amanda Trickey, and Micheal Truitt.

Tidy up Tomball is a bi-annual event that happens in the spring and in the fall. Learn more details about the next event.

Kick-off is at the Tomball Baptist Church Parking Lot – 401 Oxford St. Tomball, TX 77375 and clean-up routes are located throughout the City of Tomball.

Tidy Up Tomball is open to businesses, schools, organizations, friends, and families. Everyone is encouraged participate! Teams will be assigned to pick-up trash in a specific area of town. Teams will meet at kick-off at 8am the day of the event to sign-in and pick up their information packet and materials. After kick-off, teams will go to their assigned clean-up area as indicated on the maps in their information packet. Once the assigned area is cleaned, teams will place all of the trash bags in the specified area for the City of Tomball to pick up later in the day. Once the assigned area is completed, teams will return to kick-off to check-out their supplies and enjoy a free lunch.
