[ARCHIVED] 2013 Benbrook Trash Bash Needs You!

2013 Benbrook Trinity Trash Bash Needs You!

The 21st Annual Benbrook Trinity Trash Bash event takes place Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. This annual event provides a volunteer opportunity for Benbrook residents, visitors, groups, and organizations to take part in a fun cleanup party!

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at Pavilion #4, behind the concession stand in the east parking lot of Dutch Branch Park. This is behind the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA at Winscott Road and Benbrook Boulevard (Highway 377). Cleanup begins at 9:00 a.m. Volunteers are assigned specific areas to pick up litter and debris from the lake and park areas. Gloves and trash bags are provided.

Volunteers receive free t-shirts and fun giveaway items and are eligible to win door prizes. Again this year, a free hotdog lunch is served by 4 PAWS (Pets Are Worth Saving) volunteers at 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. In 2012, over 6500 volunteers at 23 T.R.E.E.S. events collected a record 334,000 pounds of trash and recyclables.
