Volunteers Make KIB's 2018 Annual Trash Bash a Success

Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) hosted its 27th Annual Trash Bash, the organization’s signature cleanup event, at T.W. Richardson Grove Park on Sept. 29. More than 300 volunteers of all ages came out to help pick up litter and keep it out of the nearby Trinity River. The group collected 2,840 pounds of trash during the event. In addition, 360 canned food items were donated to benefit Crisis Ministries of Irving.

The Trash Bash was held on National Public Lands Day, with an estimated 175,000 volunteers engaged in similar projects across the country that day.
