Texas Department of Transportation

 Keep Texas Beautiful and the Texas Department of Transportation first began working together in the late 1960s, sharing the common goals of making Texas roadways attractive and safe for motorists and encouraging tourism, goals which have remained for 45 years.

Since 1985, Keep Texas Beautiful has partnered through an annual contract with the Texas Department of Transportation to support TxDOT’s anti-litter and beautification programs such as Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off and the Governor’s Community Achievement Awards (GCAA). Since 1985, KTB has recognized outstanding communities via the GCAA program, with TxDOT providing the landscape awards.

Moreover, TxDOT administers the highly successful Texas Adopt-a-Highway program and has helped support the state's specialty license plate program, which is administered by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. Both programs serve as fantastic ways to show your commitment to Keep Texas Beautiful.
