Our Annual Trash Bash in Sterling will be October 15th. Registration now open:
Annual KLB Fall Trash Bash clean up around the Cascades area and Sugarland Run flood plain.
When: Sunday October 15th, 2023 starting at 12:30 pm.
Where: We’ll be meeting at the Quarterpath Trace Community Center, at 20430 Quarterpath Trace Circle, Sterling, which is at the intersection of Algonkian Pkwy and Quarterpath Trace Circle. Restrooms will be available at the Quarterpath Trace Community Center.
We require registration for everyone who’d like to participate. We are trying to assign areas beforehand to be more prepared and help things move smoother.
We will provide safety vests, gloves, bags, grabbers, fruit, granola bars and water. Please remember to bring your own reusable water bottle! In line with our mission, this will be a “plastic bottle-free zone”.
SCOUT TROOPS – We have KLB patches for the Scouts! Please indicate in the sign up your troop number, age of kids, and the number of kids and adults participating. Please just have the leader fill out 1 registration for whole troop.
REUSE YOUR T-SHIRTS FROM PRIOR YEARS
In an effort to reduce our ecological footprint, we are not printing new t-shirts. But we will have new/never used t-shirts from past years that you may take. We do encourage you to wear your KLB t-shirt from previous events you have attended.
We will also be collecting sneakers/cleats (only rubber) (no other shoe type) for our GotSneakers fundraising program. Sizes 3.5 and higher are accepted.
HELP US FIND MORE LOCATIONS TO CLEAN:
If you have seen litter in the Cascades area (park, roadway, school, anything) that is in need of folks to clean up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and report it so we can add it to our list of areas to clean up.
COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS:
Since the Cascades Trash Bash is a community service event, it qualifies for community service hours for your school, scout troop, or other organization. Just be sure to bring your forms for us to sign
