People from across the parish got their hands dirty at the 3rd Annual Spring Trash Bash on March 26 in order to beautify St. Charles Parish.

The event logged a total of 266 volunteers, who filled 177.5 bags with roadside litter and 25 bags of recyclable material.


That equals about 4,050 pounds of garbage.


After they cleaned up, they were treated to an exciting celebration, including free food, music and games at the West Bank Bridge Park.


Trash Bash was made possible with the help of a $5,000 grant through the Keep Louisiana Beautiful Healthy Communities Program and a $2,500 donation from the Entergy Foundation.

See page 9B of the March 31 print issue of the Herald-Guide for more pictures from the event.
