Mesquite, TX – April 17, 2018 – Keep Mesquite Beautiful, Inc. with support from the City of Mesquite, hosted its semi-annual Trash Bash community cleanup event on April 14. In spite of the cold weather, more than 475 volunteers participated in the event, collecting approximately 4,750 pounds of trash.
As part of a national Great American Cleanup initiative, Lowe’s donated drinking water for all Trash Bash participants and Little Caesars restaurant also sponsored the event. Price Elementary School’s National Honor Society had the largest group of participants with more than 50 students.
Following the cleanup, an appreciation picnic lunch took place at City Lake Park, where volunteers enjoyed free pizza and music. Pizza was delivered to volunteer groups who were unable to attend the picnic.
Volunteers cleaned 27 locations throughout Mesquite including parks, waterways, roadways and other public spaces where trash gathers.
Thank you to the volunteers who participated in Trash Bash 2018. Residents are encouraged to help keep our community clean year-round by properly bagging their trash, keeping a litterbag in their car and disposing of waste in the proper receptacles.
