How do I report a litterer?
Call KAB with the time, location, license plate, make of car and what was littered. We will turn them in to "Don’t Mess With Texas". Or you can do that all by clicking here.
What is “Don’t Mess with Texas”?
Don't Mess with Texas is the tough-talking litter prevention campaign sponsored by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). The campaign reminds Texans to keep their trash in the car and off our roads.
Why do people litter?
Research by Keep America Beautiful found that people litter because they feel no sense of ownership, even though areas such as parks and beaches are public property, they believe someone else, a park maintenance or highway worker, will pick up after them or the litter has already accumulated.
What if I want to organize a neighborhood cleanup?
Call KAB and we will provide the trash bags and arrange for the trash to be picked up.
