MDOT receives State Agency Partnership Award from Keep America Beautiful

MDOT was one of only 16 state agencies to be honored. MDOT was selected for this award based on its Trash Bash partnership with Keep Mississippi Beautiful. This series of annual clean-up events make a huge impact statewide by not only drawing a large number of volunteers but also removing a large amount of litter and debris from state highways.

“I’m very proud to see MDOT’s efforts in litter prevention recognized and our litter prevention coordinators commended on a job well done,” said Brad White, MDOT Executive Director. “Litter is a big, expensive problem in our state. Everyone can help keep Mississippi beautiful and save taxpayer dollars by disposing of trash in proper receptacles.”

Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s leading community improvement nonprofit organization, inspires and educates people to take action every day to improve and beautify their community environment. Established in 1953, Keep America Beautiful strives to End Littering, Improve Recycling and Beautify America’s Communities.
