Annual Trash-Off

TRASH-OFF... Oklahoma’s Spring House Cleaning

Are you tired of seeing trash along your city streets? Do you cringe when you see someone throw litter out a car window onto the highway? Does litter really bug you? If so, this is the event for you!

TRASH-OFF is the Department of Transportation’s statewide cleanup day when Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) groups, cities and communities, counties, state parks, Corps of Engineers Lakes and other organizations and individuals volunteer to clean Oklahoma highways, roads and community areas. The event began as a coordinated pickup day for AAH groups, but has grown to include a wide variety of organizations.

Many groups have expanded TRASH-OFF Day into TRASH-OFF week, or even TRASH-OFF month! Cities often participate by arranging free dump days or curbside pickups. Many groups combine cleanups with other fun events such as picnics, contests or trash parades to encourage participation. All events are coordinated statewide efforts to "KEEP OUR LAND GRAND"!

TRASH-OFF is a growing success, so why not join in and help beautify your community!

Free Trash Bag Pickup

Free 30-gallon trash bags are available for participants to use in the TRASH-OFF cleanup events. The bags are distributed by Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB) in a limited supply, and should be used only during TRASH-OFF (not throughout the year).

Participants should contact the Keep Oklahoma Beautiful Office 1-405-286-9141 for information. Pre-ordered trash bags and promotional posters will then be available for pickup at local ODOT Division Headquarters or County Maintenance Yards. Registrants will be notified to pick up orders.
