What IS Trash Bash? The following video offers a tour of the event:
The City of Richardson’s Annual Trash Bash event is held in conjunction with Keep Texas Beautiful and is open to anyone wishing to help clean up the community.
All participants will disperse from their homes/locations to their designated street, park, and/or area on the morning of the event to fill their bags with litter and recyclables. After collecting litter and recyclables, participants will return filled bags to the Richardson City Hall/Civic Center at 411 W. Arapaho Rd., where refuse will be collected or they may be left at the clean up location near trash cans. If leaving on site please inform us at check-in.
