The Don’t mess with Texas® Trash-Off is the single largest one-day cleanup event in the state. The Texas Trash-Off is part of TxDOT’s litter prevention program, which includes Don’t Mess with Texas, and a grassroots partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful. When you pledge your time and effort for the 2015 Beaumont Trash-Off, you are joining Texans across the state who will be pitching in to improve their communities. In 2014, local volunteers removed nearly 6 tons of litter and debris from Beaumont’s roadways, neighborhoods, and parks. Statewide, more than 100,000 volunteers collected 6.7 million pounds of trash.
