Mississippi can no longer afford to ignore a problem that costs over $3 million a year in clean-up efforts and immeasurable dollars in lost tourism and economic development. The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) is on a mission to keep litter off Mississippi roadways. In this site, you'll find information on the Mississippi Department of Transportation's (MDOT) anti-litter efforts, our popular media campaign featuring Think Green, Keep Mississippi Clean. MDOT offers numerous programs which are available to the public sector including our “I’m Not Your Mama” educational program presented at no cost to schools, libraries and civic organizations across the state. After reading more about Mississippi's litter problem, we invite you to join us in the fight to remove litter and restore our home state to its original beauty. Contact us to find out how to get started. And, the next time you spot someone throwing trash on the ground, feel free to use our favorite line, "Think Green, Keep Mississippi Clean"
