Cape Coral picks up 20th “Trash Bash”

Published: Updated:

CAPE CORAL, Fla. – In conjunction with Earth Day, the City of Cape Coral, several local sponsors and members of the community have once again teamed up to help beautify North West Cape Coral.

Members of the community are invited to help pick up trash throughout the canals and city lots of Cape Coral, on Saturday, April 23rd starting at 8:30 a.m. meeting at the Burnt Store Boat Ramp. Participants can pick up trash bags, gloves, t-shirts and water upon arrival but should come prepared and properly dressed.

Following the trash collection, volunteers are invited back to the boat ramp at noon to enjoy hamburgers, hotdogs, water and soda. The band Strange Arrangement will also preform to celebrate the day and 20 years of helping keep Cape Coral clean.

“The appearance of our neighborhoods has greatly improved in recent years with stronger trash containment laws and more resident awareness to help keep trash down year around,” said City Councilman and joint coordinator, Rick Williams. “We actively urge homeowners and businesses to be vigilant about keeping their properties free from trash that can blow around and get trapped in vegetation.”

For additional information on the 20th Trash Bash, call Rick Williams (239) 898-5004 or David Scott (239) 246-7508. The Burnt Store Boat Ramp is located at 230 Burnt Store Road South, just north of Ceitus Parkway in Cape Coral.
