Clue: Are you going somewhere for the holidays? Fill me out to have your home looked after by the men and women in blue while you're away! 

Mark your calendars and join us for the annual Don't Mess with Texas TRASH-OFF. The DMWT campaign encourages Texans across the state to join forces and cleanup Texas roadways. Millions of pieces of litter accumulate on our roadways each year,  gutters and waterways 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.

This is a part of the The Don't mess with Texas® Trash-Off which 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, Adopt-a-Highway, and a grassroots partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful.

Join us and be a part of this great event. Your participation sends a clear message to Texans everywhere: The smallest efforts really do make the biggest difference. Take pride in the fact that you are part of making our great state beautiful. Join this event and help us make a difference!
