East Row Historic Foundation holding third Trash Bash Challenge to clean up Newport; win fun awards

Help make Newport more beautiful!

The East Row Historic Foundation says don’t miss the 3rd Annual spirited trash-collection competition, followed by a celebration with prizes, and a chance to eat, drink, and be merry with fellow Newportians.

The big day is August 27 at 2 p.m. at Providence Park (next to the Dog Park), 449 Linden Ave.

Create teams of 4 to compete for a chance to win these coveted trophies (or new second place prizes) made by Trophy Awards:

-The Golden Trash Can Award 
(The team that collects the most trash.)

-The Most Spirited Award 
(We’ve got spirit yes we do! Don’t be afraid to dress up as a team of ghostbusters, create a team cheer, or get creative.)

-The Most Unusual Award 
(Did you find the weirdest, strangest, “someone else come look at this, I must be crazy, right?!” piece of trash? Save it and you might win! RULE: This unusual piece of trash must be found on public thoroughfare during the event.)

-The Biggest Butt Award 
(Cigarette butts are litter too! See if your team can collect the most cigarette butts to clean up the city AND bring home this award.)

Last year, 143 people picked up over 1770 pounds of trash of Newport streets.

This year, the aim is to have 200 volunteers picking up trash.
