Mission’s Trash Bash is set for April 11th.

The City of Mission is preparing for its Annual Trash Bash project, which is set for April 11th. Trash Bash has been a City tradition for many years in which local citizens, school districts, businesses, civic clubs and churches join forces and get out into their respective areas around Mission to collect trash during this designated day.

“Trash Bash is a great way to kick off the month of volunteerism. We encourage friends, and neighbors to come out and contribute to the environment and to their local community in a very significant way,” said Project Coordinator, Norma Lopez. Keeping Mission beautiful takes great undertaking but together the small efforts and spirit of cooperation will build goodwill and also improve the quality of life in Mission. Special thanks to the following City departments for their support: Planning, Police, Fire, Parks & Recreation, Streets, Risk Management and Public Works.

All schools, civic clubs, Winter Texan parks, churches, residential organizations are encouraged to round up 15 people to make up a team. Individuals are also invited to join the fun.

Volunteers will meet at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday morning at the Boys & Girls Club on West 18th St. & Conway behind Plains Capital Bank to get their assignments and to pick up the necessary items for the trash collection, which will run from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. Upon finishing, volunteers will be treated to a volunteer appreciation picnic.
