In just a couple weeks, East Texas will be a little cleaner. The Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off is set for April 14th. The Texas Department of Transportation and Angelina Beautiful/Clean are putting on the annual event.
The towns of Diboll, Homer, Hudson, Huntington, and Lufkin will take part in the trash-off. During the event, volunteers across the state will pick up litter along Texas highways.
Last year, more than 400 volunteers for Angelina Beautiful/Clean removed around 67,000 pounds of litter.
