Keep Texas Beautiful
Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) is a network of dedicated Texans working together to make our state the best place to live, work and play. We equip local partners and affiliates with the tools they need to build vibrant, engaged communities. Founded in 1967, Keep Texas Beautiful has more than 50 years of experience deploying resources for local clean-up, recycling, and youth engagement efforts. Everything we do is focused on mobilizing volunteers to take action across the state. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we lead 382 affiliates and reach 19 million Texans annually. We are proudly based in Austin, Texas. KTB is also a certified state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful.
Keep Texas Beautiful is proud to work with many impactful organizations across the state and nation. Partnerships contribute to our reach and opportunities to make a difference.
Since 1985, Keep Texas Beautiful has partnered through an annual contract with the Texas Department of Transportation to support TxDOT's anti-litter and beautification programs such as Don't mess with Texas Trash-Off and the Governor's Community Achievement Awards (GCAA). KTB has recognized outstanding communities for 24 years via the GCAA program, with TxDOT providing the landscape awards since 1985.
