2018 River, Lakes, Bays ‘N Bayous Trash Bash® Cleanup

Saturday, March 24, 2018

On March 24, 2018, the River, Lakes, Bays ‘N Bayous Trash Bash® will celebrate its 25th consecutive cleanup event. In 2017, 3,242 volunteers collected 52 tons of trash, 1.5 tons for recycling, and 574 tires, while cleaning 150 miles of shoreline at 14 locations. Over 24 years, almost 106,000 volunteers have collected 2,189 tons of trash, 16 tons for recycling, and 10,709 tires. Trash Bash makes a big impact on Texas’s waterways, especially given its location at the end of the trash stream, as it collects in the Galveston Bay watershed. This event is a great opportunity for residents to get hands-on education about the effects of littering and to learn more about simple ways to protect stormwater quality at home through interactive games at our educational exhibit areas.
