LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A nationwide program that started in Texas to keep it clean, celebrates 25 years.
Adopt - A - Highway allows volunteers to adopt a two mile stretch of highway to keep it clean, which helps reduce litter cleanup costs.
In celebration of the program's 25th anniversary, this Saturday people will see volunteers collecting trash from roadways for the Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off. The Trash-Off is a partnership between TxDOT and Keep Texas Beautiful.
