Volunteers Needed to Keep Irving Green
Aug 31, 2014 11:56PM
The city of Irving will hold its 23rd annual Trash Bash on National Public Lands Day, from 9 a.m. to noon, September 27, at the T.W. Richardson Grove Park. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of environmental issues like litter and encourage everyone to lend a hand to make a difference in their community.
Irving will be just one of many communities across the country banning together to make a clean and green difference. Approximately 503 volunteers participated in last year’s Trash Bash, committing 1,509 hours to cleaning up the community. This level of participation resulted in 2,680 pounds of liter and 400 pounds of recyclable material being removed from Irving streets.
Volunteers of all ages are invited to participate. Keep Irving Beautiful will provide supplies, including litter pickers, trash and recycle bags and gloves. Lunch will be provided after the cleanup, as well as music and prize drawings.
Location: 333 E. IH 635, a the NE corner of Valley View and I-635. Register at CityOfIrving.org/KIB by Sept. 17. For more information, call the Keep Irving Beautiful office at 972-721-2175.
