Texas A&M Texarkana's Big Event is where students, faculty, staff, alumni and families all get together and lend a hand or two to the community, giving residents a chance to clean up their area roadways and neighborhoods.
It all takes place from 8 AM. to 12 PM Saturday, April 9 at the U.S. Post Office/Courthouse downtown Texarkana located at 500 N. Stateline Avenue. The road around the Courthouse will be closed for the opening events and festivities.

At each location, residents will find a roll-off dumpster where they will be able to drop off any bulk waste and trash they might want to get rid of.
