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.

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

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.

Find Trash. Win Treasure.

Show us your best litter-prevention selfies! Snap a photo or video while picking up trash in your community to enter the Don't mess with Texas Trash & Treasure Hunt social media contest, and you could win must-have prizes from YETI, FOX Sports Southwest, the Bullock Museum, and AM Racing.

Inspired by our Trash & Treasure Hunt event series, the contest launches December 1 and ends December 14. Enter now!
