Volunteers Brave the Cold to Make 5th Annual Trash Bash A Big Success in Florissant
On Saturday March 23, 67 volunteers turned out at St. Ferdinand Park, despite cold temperatures and an imminent record-setting snowfall on Sunday, to pick up trash at several sites throughout the City. Florissant litter pickup teams collected nearly 20 cubic yards of trash!
The event was part of the 5th Annual Trash Bash which is organized every year by MSD, Great Rivers Greenway, Trailnet, Missouri American Water, St. Louis County and various municipalities and agencies, including Florissant. This year was the first time that the Florissasnt hosted a registration area from where the cleanup teams were dispatched. Other registration areas included Old Chain of Rocks Bridge and Creve Coeur Park.
Litter pickup sites included the top of the creek bank at St. Ferdinand Park, John Knox Church, and along Paddock Creek behind several properties near the intersection of Parker Road and Derhake Road.
Mayor Thomas P. Schneider congratulated City Engineer Tim Barrett for coordinating this very successful event. The Mayor thanks everyone that contributed. The event was staffed by city employees from the Health, Parks & Engineering Departments along with volunteers from MSD and Missouri American Water.
