Report a Litterer

While some Texans enjoy a hearty game of backyard washer toss, others prefer something far more sinister: the one-two trash toss from their car windows. We’re talking about cigarette butts, fast-food wrappers and the like. They’re small, but they’re still trash.

So w hat do you do when you see trash being tossed out of a car window or accidentally flying out of a truck bed? Instead of hog-tying the offender to your car, we suggest turning them in through the Texas Department of Transportation’s Report a Litterer Program.

When you see litter exit a vehicle, intentionally or accidentally, write down the following information — license plate number, make and color of vehicle, date and time, location, who tossed the litter and what was tossed.

Be as accurate as possible and submit this information at

  • Texas license plate number (Texas plates only)
  • Make of vehicle
  • Time of day
  • Location
  • Date
  • Who tossed (driver, passenger or accidental)
  • What was tossed

TxDOT compares the information to our vehicle registration database and when an exact match is located, we send the litterer a Don’t Mess with Texas litterbag along with a letter reminding them to keep their trash off of our roads.
