TRASH BASH SET FOR MARCH 7

Post Date:February 14, 2020 11:03 AM
HAHNVILLE, LA – St. Charles Parish will host its annual Trash Bash event on Saturday March 7 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. For the last 10 years, Trash Bash has promoted the removal of litter from our streets. This year, event sponsor United Way will offer First, Second and Third place prizes for the groups that collect the most trash. There will also be a raffle of an iPad and Apple Watch courtesy of Entergy in which all participants will be entered to win.

“First impressions make a difference and litter makes a bad impression for anyone coming to do business in our parish so the removal of litter isn’t only important to our environment, but also our quality of life,” said President Matthew Jewell. “We are hoping a little healthy competition attracts residents from all around the parish to participate as we come together to show our pride in the community.”

Volunteers can either choose a specific area to clean up or be assigned area. All volunteers are encouraged to sign up ahead of time and can do so as individuals or as teams at www.stcharlesparish-la.gov/trashbash or by calling 985-331-8604. All equipment will be provided including pickup sticks, gloves and trash bags.

After the litter removal is complete, participants are invited to gather at the Edward A. Dufresne Community Center to enjoy free food, music, snowballs and face painting sponsored by Pelican Waste, United Way, Entergy and D&G Electric.

The deadline to register for Trash Bash is March 3.
