Volunteers are needed to help make Irving cleaner and greener from 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 29 during Keep Irving Beautiful’s (KIB) Annual Trash Bash.
KIB is enlisting the support of individuals, groups and business organizations to make this year’s Trash Bash even bigger than last year. This year’s cleanup will be held at T.W. Richardson Grove Park, 333 E. Interstate Highway 635 (LBJ), at the Northeast corner of Valley View and I-635.
There is not a minimum age requirement for the cleanup, so everyone can participate, but it is limited to 600 volunteers. Volunteers 17 and younger require a parent or guardian to complete a release form and also must accompany the volunteer during the event.
The cleanup celebrates a collaboration among KIB, Parks and Recreation and Solid Waste Services departments. KIB will provide supplies, such as litter pickers, trash and recycle bags, and gloves. Lunch will be provided after the cleanup. While supplies last, volunteers that bring a canned food item for donation will receive a free T-shirt.
Event organizers are asking for prospective participants to register by Sept. 21. To register or for more information, call (972) 721-2175 or visit the Keep Irving Beautiful website.
