By Staff | Apr 12, 2016

Come by boat or by car to the 20th annual Northwest Cape Coral Trash Bash Saturday, April 23, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Burnt Store Boat Ramp located at 230 Burnt Store Road, S., just north of Ceitus Parkway. Northwest Cape Coral area residents, property owners and local schools team up with city code enforcement and police departments to clean up trash from empty properties and canals.

Participants can pick up free trash bags, gloves, T-shirts, and water at 8:30 a.m. and before fanning out to collect unsightly neighborhood trash. Large dumpsters will be stationed at the Burnt Store Boat Ramp to collect trash.

Volunteers are invited to return to the boat ramp shelter at noon to enjoy hamburgers, hotdogs, water and soda.

The annual Northwest Trash Bash is held in conjunction with Keep Lee County Beautiful and national Great American Cleanup Earth Day events and has consistently had the largest turnout in Lee County.

Sponsors providing free equipment, food and drinks are: Keep Lee County Beautiful, Abate Pest Control, Domino’s Pizza at 3904 Skyline Blvd., Marine Forrest Research, Inc., Northwest Cape Coral Neighborhood Association, and Cape Coral Parks and Recreation.
