Sustainability at Texas SandFest

Taking care of the coast

Port Aransas is located on Mustang Island, and the coastal environment makes it an imperative part of Texas SandFest's mission to act sustainably during the event.

Disposal Options

There will be 30 aluminum can recycling bins and 15 plastic recycling bins throughout the event available for your use. There will also be over 70 trash cans will be throughout the event. Please do your part by putting trash "in the can, not the sand." We appreciate your help!
