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.
In honor of our 50th Anniversary, we hosted the launch of our 1st Annual Keep Texas Beautiful Fall Sweep.
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. Special thanks go to the 147 groups who have gone the extra two miles to keep Texas beautiful for 20 years or more.
