The fourth annual Spring Trash Bash comes on the heels of a successful fall event that saw thousands of volunteers pitching in.

Each year tons of trash and debris from urban areas and roadsides wind up in the river after a rainfall. Help clean up our river during the Trinity River Spring Trash Bash, 8:30-11 a.m. May 19.

Groups, families and individuals can volunteer to clean trash along the Trinity River. Organizers are looking to break last year’s record of more than 4,000 volunteers. Just choose an assignment location and register, then come ready to work on May 19.

When the trash is all bashed, volunteers are treated to an after-party with free food, door prizes and entertainment at Panther Island Pavilion, 395 Purcey St., and Cobb Park, 1600 Cobb Drive. The parties will last until noon.
