Trinity Trash Bash Information

McKinney residents are invited to participate in the Trinity Trash Bash. This event is the twin cousin to the Texas Trash-Off but held in the fall.

This regional event encourages residents and businesses to join forces and clean up our roadsides, waterways, neighborhoods and parks to protect the Trinity River watershed. Each year during the Trinity Trash Bash, volunteers throughout the North Central Texas area help improve local water quality, restore natural beauty and reduce potential threats to human health and wildlife.

Bring your family, friends, co-workers or organization members and join us for this fun and important event. Every registered participant submitting a liability waiver will receive a T-shirt. This is a great opportunity for students to earn community service hours. City staff will assign a location to clean based on dry weather screening tests from Stormwater Staff.  The goal is to keep McKinney "Unique by Nature" and protect the Trinity River watershed!


McKinney is a proud member of T.R.E.E.S., the Trinity River Environmental Education Society, and is committed to litter abatement as it relates to the Trinity River and its watershed.
