Northwest Cape Coral boaters, friends, neighbors, and students are invited to come by water or land to participate in the 23rd annual Northwest Cape Coral Trash Bash to be held Saturday, April 13 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Burnt Store Road Boat Ramp.

Volunteers will team up with the city code compliance and police departments to clean up trash from neighborhoods, roadways, empty properties, and canals in conjunction with “Keep Lee County Beautiful” events.

Participants are urged to wear protective clothing, closed shoes and sun screen and stop by the boat ramp to check in and pick up free trash bags, gloves,T-shirts, and water at 8:30 a.m. before fanning out to collect unsightly neighborhood trash. Large trash collection Dumpsters will be located at the Burnt Store Road Boat Ramp to collect trash. Volunteers are invited to return to the boat ramp shelter at noon to enjoy pizza.

“The appearance of our neighborhoods has greatly improved in recent years, as we have become more aware of unsightly litter and how it affects our environment,” said Judy Harvey, site captain for the Burnt Store Road Public Boat Ramp location, in a prepared statement. “Over the years, we’ve become more vigilant about minimizing litter year round to keep it from getting trapped in fences, vegetation and along canals and endangering our environment and wildlife.”

Sponsors providing equipment, food and financial support are: Domino’s Pizza at 3904 Skyline Blvd., Northwest Cape Coral Neighborhood Association, Inc., City of Cape Coral Councilman Rick Williams, Keep Lee County Beautiful, Hi-Def Printing, City of Cape Coral Parks and Recreation Department, and Dolan Marketing.
