Mark your calendars and join us for the Don't mess with Texas® Trash-Off annual cleanup. The Trash-Off encourages Texans across the state to join forces and clear Texas roadsides of trash. Millions of pieces of litter accumulate on our roadways each year, which means we need your help.

Everyone can participate! Volunteers come from all walks of life: students, business leaders, civic and non-profit organizations, individuals, families, community groups, sororities, fraternities, sports teams, military, etc. If you have some free time, please volunteer and make a difference.

The Don't mess with Texas® Trash-Off is the single largest one-day cleanup event in the state and serves as Texas’ signature event for the Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest community improvement program. The Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off is part of TxDOT’s litter prevention program, which includes Don’t Mess with Texas and Adopt-a-Highway.
