Don't mess with Texas Trash-Off

Saturday, April 11, 2015

 The Don't mess with Texas Trash-Off serves as Texas’ signature event for the Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest community improvement program, held annually from March 1 through May 31.

The Don't mess with Texas Trash-Off is part of the partnership between Keep Texas Beautiful and the Texas Department of Transportation. Participants can receive trash bags, volunteer giveaways, promotional items, and more.


           


In 2014, 2,735 Don't mess with Texas Trash-Off events were held across the state, featuring over 100,000 volunteers! All told, 8,839 miles of highway were cleared of litter and debris, totaling over 6.7 million pounds of trash! 

If you have registered for an event, the toolkit gives you access to tips, tools and other Don't mess with Texas Trash-Off resource materials. For additional information, contact Christine Chute Canul, KTB Program Director.

Please note: Participants interested in using the Don’t mess with Texas logo must receive prior approval from TxDOT as DMWT is federally registered and owned by TxDOT, thus cannot be used without permission.

The use of the Don't mess with Texas logo for the printing of t-shirts is not allowed, regardless of if they are not for profit.  You may use the Don't mess with Texas Trash-Off logo, as part of our agreement with TxDOT, but the Don't mess with Texas logo by itself cannot be used.

If you have any questions as to which logo needs approval, please contact Christine Chute Canul.
