The objective is to encourage people to pick up litter anywhere in the community on Nov. 1, with the official start time being 11 a.m. (remember to turn clocks back one hour at bedtime the night before).

To participate, people simply need to pledge to pick up trash on Nov. 1 and register by email at sustain@tru.ca, with Trash Bash in the subject line to be eligible to win prizes.

In light of the pandemic, people are encouraged to pick up trash with others in their bubbles or by themselves.

Participants are also asked to practise physical distancing, wear a mask if desired, wash hands during and after the event, wear gloves and do not pick up anything that they are not comfortable with touching.
