ODESSA - A big effort coming from one Odessa oil company.

Flint Hills Resources is being recognized by Keep Odessa Beautiful for collecting over 729,000 pounds of trash from property in South Odessa.

Along with picking up trash they also recycled wood, plastic and other items that they found.

And to give you an idea of how much steel was found in the trash pick up, Keep Odessa Beautiful says it's equivalent to eleven and a half school buses.

Flint Hills has a goal of collecting one million pounds by the date of the "Don't Mess With Texas Trash Off."
