Litter Free Dallas

This page is designed to help you find all the local resources you may need to help stomp out litter in Dallas!

More than 60 groups collected 48 tons of trash this October during Operation Beautification! Visit the Neighborhood Vitality link below to learn more.       Need to report illegal dumping? Visit the Dallas Marshal's Office link below.       The most common reasons people litter: they do not feel connected to the area; they think someone else will clean it; there are no containers nearby; existing litter makes it okay to litter.
