Success at KLB's Trinity Trash Bash Cleanup
Here is KLB's write-up of the event:
Keep Lewisville Beautiful (KLB) celebrated its 21st annual citywide waterway cleanup on Saturday November 17, 2012 at Lake Park. This free event was held in conjunction with a regional effort Trinity Trash Bash waterway cleanup event, a collective effort of over 33 local communities to keep our waterways clean. KLB partnered with The City of Lewisville, LLELA, T.R.E.E.S., Army Corps of Engineers, Upper Trinity Regional Water District, and Kayak Power to help make this event as successful as it could be and help educate volunteers about waterway health and conservation. 201 volunteers showed outstanding community spirit by working hard and picking up over 3,790 pounds of trash out of Lewisville creeks, streams, shoreline, canals, and along the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. That’s 1.9 TONS of trash cleaned out of our local waterways! Several illegal dumping sites were also cleared thanks to very dedicated volunteers. KLB would like to thank all of the wonderful volunteers who worked so hard to clean our waterways and help make this event a success. Trophies for most trash collected for adult groups are as follows: The Lewisville Texan Journal team led by Steve Southwell won for adult large with 15+ bags, and adult small went to EA engineering with 8+ bags. Most trash collected for youth large group went to LHS Student Council with 25+ bags, and Girl Scout troop 3533 for youth small with 16 bags. “Most interesting item found” trophy went to LHS Student Council for an old boat spot light, found in a local creek by the Hedrick House. Other interesting dumped items included propane tanks, license plates, shopping carts, bathroom sink, and undergarments.
