What To Bring 

The most important thing is a smiling happy face and a can-do attitude. You will receive supplies needed for the clean-up the day of the event. Please arrive a little by 9 a.m. and you will receive a bag with gloves, trash bags, etc. If you're a trash-bash professional and want to bring your own supplies such as trash grabbers or heavy duty gloves we encourage you to do so!

What To Wear 

Wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. Although you will be walking down a well maintained trail system it is still located near the shoreline.  Using your pickers to retrieve litter in grass and brush is highly possible. 

What About Weather

As we all know, Texas weather can be unpredictable. The Trash Bash is a rain or shine event except in the case of severe weather. You can check the Town of Little Elm Website www.littleelm.org for day-of updates if weather becomes an issue.

What about Parking?

Beard Park has limited parking; however there is plenty of parking at Towers Tap House & Hydrous next door.  Please try to utilitze this space first as there will be many families on foot in the parking lot area gathering supplies for the cleanup.



KLEB Lakefront Trash Bash - Fall of 2019 

Join friends at Beard Park on Saturday, November 2nd from 9 a.m. to Noon for our annual Lakefront TRASH BASH! We will walk the park and Lakefront trails collecting trash and recyclables along the way with friends, family and pets. This beautification project benefits the entire region by continuing to keep our lake free of trash and debris.

This year we are collaborating with another LE non-profit, the Little Elm Food Bank.  Please bring canned food items, toiletries (diapers, lotions, deodeorants, toothpaste, soap, female specific items, etc.) cooking spices, cooking oil and so on.  Please see the full list below.  For you donation you will be entered into our raffle for a Thanksgiving Dinner!
