PARTICIPATE IN THE 2017 DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS® TRASH-OFF

Saturday 8 April 2017, 9am – noon

10689871_762820663783440_7046317588503257725_nEach April, volunteers throughout the state remove litter from roadsides, city parks, neighborhoods, and waterways during the state’s single largest one-day cleanup event.

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 part of TxDOT’s litter prevention program, which includes Don’t mess with Texas, Adopt-a-Highway, and a grassroots partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful.  Generous support is provided by the City of Bastrop through Bastrop Power & Light.
