Keep Texas Beautiful sponsors and supports programs that build our affiliate network and provide easy-to-use resources to clean up, recycle and make our communities greener across the state. KTB programs may be hosted locally by recognized KTB community affiliates, civic groups, businesses, schools, individuals and more. Our programs, as well as our useful resources, will help you engage your community to get more involved while building a clean and beautiful future for all Texans.

Keep Texas Beautiful supports affiliate efforts in recycling programs through a few different avenues. KTB provides resources and technical assistance to affiliates looking to start or grow an existing recycling program. Due to KTB’s strong connections throughout the state, we are able to connect affiliates with local and statewide partners who are able to further assist in their own community.
KTB also offers recycling grants to affiliates throughout the year. These grants help to get recycling programs started locally and support existing recycling efforts. These grants have helped to support purchase new recycling bins for schools and farmers markets, renovate signage at recycling centers, and even offset the cost to pave a parking spot for a recycling dumpster. Affiliate recycling programs vary widely from community to community, based on the community needs and resources.
Recycling education and resources are an important part of keeping Texas beautiful. This coupled with litter prevention efforts from partners like TxDOT help keep our Texas roadways clean and beautiful.
