Thank you for caring about our environment! Don't Trash Arizona is a program implemented by the Maricopa Association of Governments, in collaboration with the Arizona Department of Transportation, to address the envirnomental, economic, safety, and health impacts of freeway litter along regional and state highways. The program is funded through Proposition 400, which was approved by voters in 2004. That funding encompasses litter pickup, sweeping, and landscape maintenance, as well as litter education and prevention. Don't Trash Arizona seeks to change attitudes, awareness, and most importantly, behavior, when it comes to roadway littering.
We hope that as you learn more about the impacts of litter in our region, you will take action by refraining from littering and helping us spread the word:
Don't Trash Arizona!
