Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest community improvement program, taking place annually now through May 31.

Activities can include beautifying parks and recreation areas, cleaning waterways, handling recycling collections, picking up litter, removing graffiti, planting trees and conducting educational programs and litter-free events — anything that keeps a community beautiful.

The Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off serves as Texas’ signature event for the Great American Cleanup.

The 2014 Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off is scheduled for April 5.

The Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off is a partnership between Keep Texas Beautiful and the Texas Department of Transportation.

Register at for local organizations to schedule events in and gain access to valuable resources to plan, promote and host an event.

Participants are encouraged to register their events with Keep Texas Beautiful in order to receive trash bags, volunteer giveaways, promotional items and more to assist in facilitating their cleanup event.

Participants can elect to post their event information on the Keep Texas Beautiful event calendar.
