Volunteer Trash Pick-up

Join Meridian State Park and their Friends Group to pick up trash along Hwy 22 & 1473!

The Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off is the single largest one-day cleanup event in the state and serves as Texas’s 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.


Don't mess with Texas is rewarding Boy Scouts in Texas this summer who volunteer at a litter removal event. All Boy Scouts who participate will earn a special Don’t mess with Texas 30th anniversary patch. Send an email to with a short description of the litter cleanup event you attended and an optional photo and we will mail you a patch.
