We hear a lot about the importance of recycling—and with good reason. It helps to reduce the amount of trash we send to our landfills and conserves natural resources. However, it’s important to remember that there are two other Rs—reduce and reuse—which are even more effective ways to protect our environment. Help spread the word to friends and neighbors. Thank you for supporting the Gillespie County Adopt-a-County Road Litter Program!

Gillespie County Commissioners Court is pleased to introduce its Adopt-a-County Road Program to maintain the natural beauty of our County while decreasing the cost of litter pickup.
This program is modeled after the very successful Adopt-a-Highway Program by the Texas Department of Transportation that has been operating in Texas since 1985, and has grown into a national and international litter-prevention effort, saving taxpayers’ dollars and keeping our right of way clean.
The Gillespie County Adopt-a-County Road Program focuses on Gillespie County roads to support and recognize groups and volunteers who are willing to help pick up litter on our County roads to keep Gillespie County beautiful.

How to 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.
When you witness someone littering, write down the following information:
- license plate number
- make of vehicle
- time of day
- who tossed the litter (driver, passenger, or accidental)
- what was tossed
Then, visit TxDOT’s Report a Litterer to report the incident.
TxDOT 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.
