DMWT Trash-Off encourages Texans to help clear roadside litter  

March 29, 2023

ATLANTA – Community members from across northeast Texas will be teaming up for the Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off to beautify their community and roads next Saturday, April 6. The Trash-Off is the state’s largest one-day litter cleanup event, with multiple local events happening throughout Texas.


The Trash-Off is part of TxDOT’s litter prevention program. “This is the date we ask everybody to come together,” said TxDOT Atlanta District Adopt-A-Highway Coordinator Stephanie Fahrney. “It takes all of us to keep Texas beautiful. Our community really shows out and makes us proud.”


Every year, families, social clubs, Adopt-A-Highway groups, neighborhoods and Keep Texas Beautiful affiliates all over the state join forces to pick up litter and beautify their local communities.


Drivers are encouraged to slow down and pay attention to volunteers that are out picking up trash on Saturday, April 6.
