Keep Lake Dallas Beautiful (KLDB) is a proud affiliate of Keep Texas Beautiful, an organization with a mission to educate and engage Texans to take responsibility for improving their community environment through programming and education addressing 3 focus areas including: 

  • Beautification
  • Litter abatement
  • Waste reduction


The Adopt-a-Spot Program is part of Keep Lake Dallas Beautiful. It's a program focused on both litter abatement and beautification. Families, along with service and civic organizations, have adopted parks and stretches of roadway throughout the city accepting the goal to keep those areas beautiful and free of litter.

Citywide Cleanup

Safely dispose of unwanted junk that is cluttering up your home, garage or yard.

Don't Mess with Texas Trash Off

We invite you to join us for the largest one-day cleanup event in the state of Texas!  The Trash-Off serves as Texas’ signature event for the Great American Cleanup, the nation's largest community improvement program.
