Existing Programs Adopt-a Street In the past year, over 1430 volunteers have spent over 3000 hours picking up litter along 48 miles of street within DeSoto. The City recognizes these volunteers twice yearly at the Adopt-a-Street Banquets. Citizens who have performed exceptional service in keeping DeSoto clean receive special awards.
Annual Clean-up Week
This program is held the first weekend in April each year in conjunction
with Keep Texas Beautiful and TxDOT's "Don't Mess with Texas
K.D. Bee, the mascot of Keep DeSoto Beautiful, visits schools and civic
groups with a video presentation to teach children (and their parents!)
the importance of keeping our city clean. To schedule a showing of the
video and/or a visit by K.D. Bee, contact Parks & Leisure Services
Sign Sleeve Program
For only $44.00, citizens can sponsor a sign sleeve to place on an
Adopt-a-Street sign in the city. Sleeves read either "Keep DeSoto
Beautiful" or "Please Do Not Litter."
