Trash Bash and household hazardous waste collection set for April 22

In conjunction with Earth Day and Keep Louisiana Beautiful, St. Charles Parish will host the 15th Annual Trash Bash and a Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day on Saturday, April 22 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“Trash Bash is just one of the many ways our residents are able to show community pride, and we are excited to partner with Keep Louisiana Beautiful to clean up our parish this year,” St. Charles Parish President Matthew Jewell said. “I challenge all of our residents to come out to the event and help team up to clean up St. Charles Parish.”

Volunteers can choose an area to clean up or be assigned a place to pick up. Equipment will be provided for participants, including pickup sticks, gloves and trash bags.

Sign up as individuals or groups is strongly encouraged ahead of time and is available at The deadline to register is April 14.

After completing litter removal, participants will drop off their equipment at the Edward A. Dufresne Community Center, located at 274 Judge Edward Dufresne Parkway in Luling. A post-event celebration with food, fun and activities will take place there, and all participants will be entered to win raffle prizes. The drawing for the raffle prizes will take place at the Trash Bash celebration.

The Household Hazardous Materials Collection will take place at the West Bank Bridge Park at the same time that Trash Bash is occurring. This collection will allow residents and businesses to dispose of or recycle materials that cannot be picked up curbside.

“Additionally, we are grateful for our community partners who will help us to conduct the Household Hazardous Materials Collection Day,” Jewell added. “We know many residents have looked forward for this day, and we are excited to provide this opportunity to properly dispose of items that are not able to be picked up with regular garbage collection.”
