Several Stephens County groups will be joining the statewide Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off this weekend to help clean up the roads around Breckenridge.

The Trash-Off is the state’s largest one-day litter cleanup event, with multiple local events happening throughout state, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

The Trash-Off is part of TxDOT’s litter prevention program. Volunteers include the members of more than 3,800 Adopt-a-Highway groups and more than 300 Keep Texas Beautiful communities. AAH groups are in charge of highway cleanup, while KTB volunteers will focus on neighborhoods, city streets and parks.

On Saturday, April 6, the following groups are scheduled to clean up their designated roadways:

  • Breckenridge Rotary Club and Boy Scouts:  U.S. Highway 183 – Two miles south of city limits continuing south for two miles.
  • Breckenridge High School PALS:  U.S. Highway 180 – From State Highway 67 to two miles east.
  • McKelvain Family Cattle Drive — FM 1853 in Moran.

On Friday, Delta Oil and Gas is scheduled to clean up PR 33 at Texas Loop 252 in Caddo to two miles NNE.

During the Trash-Off, groups will be working along the roadside collecting litter, and TxDOT reminds drivers to drive carefully in the areas where the volunteers are working. Volunteers will be wearing safety vests for higher visibility.
