Our community cleanup programs, including the Great American Cleanup and Don't mess with Texas Trash-Off, assist in removing litter from roadsides, city parks, neighborhoods and waterways.
Our second annual Fall Sweep will open September 8 and run through November 11, 2018 to incorporate National Planting Day and National Day of Service. Join us for another chance to clean your community and help keep Texas beautiful!
Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest community improvement program, taking place annually each spring. This year is the event's 20th Anniversary.
Even after more than 25 years of the Don’t mess with Texas® campaign, litterbugs still roam the roadways, tossing trash from their car windows and letting litter fly out of their truck beds. We’re talking about cigarette butts, fast food wrappers, and the like. They’re small, but they’re still trash.
The Texas Adopt-a-Highway program, which is the premier litter prevention campaign of the Texas Department of Transportation, began in 1985, when the Tyler Civitan Club adopted a two-mile stretch of Highway 69. Adopt-a-Highway currently has more than 3,800 participating groups across the state, saving the state $3+ million a year in litter pickup.
