Forest Park Trash Bash (Hosted by FPDCC)

April 6 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT

Kick off Earth Month at the Forest Preserves of Cook County’s annual Trash Bash!

Get inspired to do some spring cleaning at home, and we’ll help keep the things you no longer need out of the landfill! Bring your old electronics, musical instruments prescription drugs, books, bikes, clothing and more to donate. The first 50 donors will receive a free, “Don’t be Trashy” t-shirt.

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.
