Report a Litterer
Even after more than 25 years of the Don’t mess with Texas® campaign, litterbugs still roam the roadways, tossing trash from their car windows and letting litter fly out of their truck beds. We’re talking about cigarette butts, fast food wrappers, and the like. They’re small, but they’re still trash.
There has been a dramatic increase in litter being tossed out of cars coming into and leaving our town. There is something you can do if you see this happening:
Here's what to do:
1. Take some notes
When you see litter thrown or flying out of a vehicle, intentionally or accidentally, take down the following information - license plate number, make and color of vehicle, date and time, location, who tossed the litter, and what was tossed. Then visit this website, fill in the blanks and click submit:
2. Then What Happens?
xDOT compares the information through the Department of Motor Vehicles registration database, and when an exact match is located, we send the litterer a “Don’t mess with Texas” litterbag along with a letter reminding them to keep their trash off of our roads.
And you can feel good about doing something to clean up our beloved Lone Star State.
