Volunteers Needed for Texas Trash-Off


Join good Samaritans across the state in making Texas the cleanest and most beautiful state in the country as part of the Great American Cleanup, the nation’s largest community improvement program.

Keep Irving Beautiful invites all residents, businesses and civic groups to make a clear and clean difference in the community by participating in the 2018 Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off from 9 a.m. to noon April 7 at Trinity View Park, 2298 E. Sixth St. The annual trash-off is Texas’ signature event for the Great American Cleanup.

Part of a national movement, Keep Irving Beautiful is one of more than 1,200 organizations that will engage millions of volunteers in improving their communities through litter-abatement events and activities on or around April 7. In Irving, volunteers will focus on Trinity View Park ― part of Campion Trail ― which borders the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. Removing litter from Trinity View Park is critical because the adjacent waterway supports the water needs of nine million people, which equates to about 40 percent of all Texans.

Volunteers will be provided with safety vests, gloves and litter grabbers, as well as bags for trash and recycling. In addition, volunteers will be treated to a free lunch after the event.

For more information, email  KIB coordinator Richard Hose or call (972) 721-2175. For individual or group registration, visit and locate the “Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off/Great American Cleanup” link. Online registration closes April 2. All ages are welcome.
