Texas is getting ready for spring and with the new season comes a renewed desire to clean up trash that litters the state's highways.
On Saturday, more than 82,000 volunteers will take part in the 28th Annual Great Texas Trash-off, one of the nation’s largest one-day litter pickup events.

The Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off is Texas’ largest one-day cleanup event that occurs annually.
