All Valley Trash Bash & Country Cleanup Set for April 6-13

PeopleTrashBagsHC1304Valley Proud Environmental Council organized the first All Valley Trash Bash in 1990, which was the first multi-county cleanup effort in the state of Texas.

In 1996, the Trash Bash was expanded to a week for the collection of household furniture, appliances, and other non-hazardous materials from rural residents in the four county area.

The four-county Rio Grande Valley leads the way in cleaning up city streets and alleys, parks, county roads, and drainage ditches with the All Valley Trash Bash and Country Cleanup April 6-13. Four Cameron County Precincts, all four Hidalgo County Precincts, and all Willacy County Precincts will be participating in this year’s cleanup.

On Saturday, April 6, volunteers from cities and towns will pitch in to pick up trash.

It is estimated that more than 200,000 volunteers will participate in the Annual Don’t Mess With Texas Trash-Off organized by the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) and Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB).

Trash thrown out by thoughtless individuals destroys the natural beauty of our Valley roadways and landscape. Thousands of caring volunteers work hard to clean up – after those people who keep trashing our countryside. Valley Proud is happy to be at the forefront of eradicating litter and to be partnering with Keep Texas Beautiful’s Trash-Off and Keep Texas Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup. The more people and organizations that become involved, the more we can accomplish in trash removal and illegal dumping prevention throughout the Rio Grande Valley.

Groups wanting to volunteer for the Trash Bash should call the Trash Bash Hotline in their community, the Valley Proud Hotline at 412-8004, or visit the Valley Proud website at www.valleyproud.org.
