No More Trash Bash

Northwest Missouri is now a bit cleaner due to the work of volunteers who help with an annual clean-up event.

This past April the Missouri Departments of Conservation and Transportation took part in the No More Trash Bash. Customer Relations Manager for MoDOT, Melissa Black, says this event has developed into a statewide effort.

Black says litter clean-up is a year-round job, and costs the state of Missouri over five million dollars every year. For more information about the Bash and other litter prevention activities, visit
