[ARCHIVED] Trash Bash is September 17

The 24th Annual Benbrook Trinity Trash Bash event takes place Saturday, September 17, 2016 from 8:30am to 11:30am. This annual event offers an opportunity for Benbrook residents, visitors, groups, and organizations to volunteer to take part in a fun cleanup party!

Registration begins at 8:30am at the pavilion located behind the concession stand in the back parking lot behind the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA at 1899 Winscott Road. Cleanup begins at 9:00am. Volunteers are assigned specific areas in the park to pick up litter and debris. Gloves and trash bags are provided. Please call 817-249-6008 to register prior to the event.

Trash Bash provides volunteers with free t-shirts and fun giveaway items, and everyone is eligible to win door prizes. Again this year, a free hotdog lunch will be served by 4 PAWS volunteers around 11:00am.

Trinity Trash Bash is an annual volunteer cleanup of the Trinity River and its tributaries. As a member of the Trinity River Environmental Educational Society (T.R.E.E.S.), Benbrook is part of a network of municipalities that participate in this important environmental effort each year. Annually, approximately 6,500 volunteers participate in about 25 area events, collecting some 335,000 pounds of trash and recyclables.

Your participation in this event ensures the success of Benbrook Trash Bash!
