Residents may pick up free trash bags and commemorative T-shirts beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the Burnt Store Boat Ramp and then go to known problem areas or an area of their choice from north of Pine Island Road and west of El Dorado Boulevard to collect trash. Large dumpsters will be conveniently located at the Burnt Store Boat Ramp and on Yucatan Blvd. at Burnt Store Road to receive collected trash for disposal.
At noon, participants will return to the Boat Ramp to enjoy a community pizza party. The annual event is held in conjunction with the Keep Lee County Beautiful and the national Great American Cleanup Earth Day events. Working together, the northwest Trash Bash has consistently had the largest turnout in the county.
“Our neighborhood has greatly improved its appearance over just a few years ago, with stronger trash containment laws and more resident awareness in keeping litter down year around,” said event co-coordinator, Rick Williams. “We actively urge homeowners and businesses to be vigilant about keeping their properties free of trash that can blow around and get trapped in vegetation.”
Absentee property owners and Realtors® who have not checked on old “for sale” signs recently are advised to recheck on them to ensure they are still standing. Old, fallen signs have been a big area litter problem in the past and will be discarded if they are on the ground.
