Show Little Elm you care about your community and the environment by adopting a street! The Adopt-A-Street program provides individuals, civic organizations, and others with an opportunity to help beautify their community by volunteering their services to collect litter alongside Little Elm streets.

DMWT 2017 Trash Off.jpg

Mark your calendars and join us for the Don't mess with Texas® Trash-Off annual cleanup. 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 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!
