Program Overview

How do you like to help?

Join thousands of Texas-loving friends to clean up our roads and remind others that we don’t take kindly to litterers in the Lone Star State.

Texas Sponsor a Highway

Texas Sponsor a Highway®

Are you or your business looking for an opportunity to join the fight against litter? Sponsoring roadside cleanup is the newest form of litter prevention. And the best part is that your business gets all of the positive recognition for your contribution to the community and you don’t even have to lift a finger.

Adopt-a-Highway

Adopt-a-Highway

If you tend to follow your own road, why not put your name on it and make it official? All you have to do is adopt a section of a Texas roadside and clean it up four to six times a year. The first highway to be adopted was right here in Texas—now it’s your turn. And it doesn’t cost a thing.

Trash-Off

Everyone is welcome to grab a friend and come participate in the state’s largest single-day cleanup event, organized by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Don’t mess with Texas, and Keep Texas Beautiful.
