The Adopt-a-Highway program which began in Texas 6 years ago has spread across the nation. Today Texas has more than 3,800 groups cleaning up more than 7,000 miles of roadside. In 1987, in an effort to expand the statewide program, Texas planned its first Great Texas Trash-Off. Thousands of volunteers came out one Saturday in April and cleaned beaches, parks, roadsides and playgrounds. This successful effort led to three more such events. The director of the Texas highway Department's Travel and Information Division has chaired the nationwide AASHTO (American Association of State Highway and Transportation) Task Force for the Great American Trash-Off on June 1. This is being planned in connection with the United Nations World Environment Day. The 1991 event will involve 43 states and the District Columbia.
