Forest Park Trash Bash at Miller Meadow

April 1, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT


The Forest Preserves of Cook County is kicking off Earth Month with their first, inaugural Trash Bash!

Trash Bash will be held at Miller Meadow (Groves 6 & 7) located at 1st Ave, south of Roosevelt Rd on Saturday, April 1 from 10am-2pm.

Get inspired to do some spring cleaning at home, and we’ll help keep the things you no longer need out of the landfill! You can also take part in a volunteer cleanup effort with your friends and family and put litter in its place. Bags, gloves and trash grabbers will be provided. Enjoy green giveaways and learn about other ways to get involved with volunteering in the forest preserves as well as how to live more sustainably.


  • SCARCE will be collecting musical instruments, sheet music, books, holiday lights and bread tags
  • AMVETS will be collecting gently used clothing, toys & games, household items, sports equipment, and more
  • Working Bikes will be collecting adult bikes in repairable condition, gently used children’s bikes, bike parts, tools, and bike accessories. All donations will be redistributed to people in local and global communities
  • Cook County Sheriff’s Office will be collecting unwanted/expired prescription pills as well as recycling select electronics
