Annual Trash Bash

Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) invites the community to attend the 32nd Annual Trash Bash from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Sept. 23. This year’s cleanup will be held at T.W. Richardson Grove Park, 333 E. Hwy 635 (LBJ). Download the flier (PDF).

Online registration is closed. For more information call the Keep Irving Beautiful office at (972) 721-2175.

All ages are welcome to participate; volunteers 17 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. KIB will provide supplies such as litter pickers, trash and recycle bags and gloves, as well as lunch after the event.

Volunteers who bring canned food items to donate will receive a T-shirt, while supplies last.

The 2023 Trash Bash will be held on National Public Lands Day as in years past, and will be one of many events occurring across the country that day. The nation’s largest single-day volunteer event for public lands raises awareness on environmental issues like litter, and encourages everyone to lend a hand to make a difference in their community.

Participate in a Virtual Cleanup

KIB also is offering a virtual cleanup option for residents who wish to participate in smaller groups. Virtual volunteers should pick a safe location to conduct their own cleanups.

Online registration is not required for virtual cleanup events. After their cleanup is completed, the group should share on their social media account:

  • A picture of the group
  • The number of volunteers
  • Total hours of participation
  • Total number of trash and/or recycling bags collected
