EMPTY THE SHELTER Residents should look no further than the Irving Animal Care Campus, 4140 Valley View Lane, to find their perfect pet match during the Empty the Shelter Event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 16. During the special adoption event, all spayed and neutered animals will be available to the public at no cost, although other fees may apply. Trash Bash volunteers

Trash Bash Organizers Aim to Make This Year’s Event Bigger Volunteers needed to help make Irving cleaner and greener from 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 27 during Keep Irving Beautiful’s 23rd Annual Trash Bash. Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) is enlisting the support of individuals, groups and business organizations to make this year’s Trash Bash the largest in history. This year’s cleanup will be held at T.W. Richardson Grove Park, 333 E. Interstate Highway 635 (LBJ), at the Northeast corner of Valley View and I-635. “Participation in beautification projects like the Trash Bash has consistently trended upward, and the Trash Bash is a great opportunity for residents, businesses and civic organizations to display the spirit of volunteerism that has made Irving famous,” said KIB Administrator Rick Hose. “Our goal is to get folks personally invested in litter abatement — after picking up trash for a couple of hours, you get a better idea of the damage that’s done when people carelessly litter our parks and neighborhoods.” In keeping with tradition, this year’s Trash Bash will be held in conjunction with National Public Lands Day the country’s largest single-day volunteer event for public lands to raise awareness of environmental issues like litter. Accordingly, Irving will be just one of many communities across the country banding together to make a clean and green difference. “We have hundreds who come year after year to be part of the cleanup, but we’re hoping for a surge in first-time participants to push us over the 500 mark,” said Hose. “So, for those who have never taken part in

a KIB beautification project, this is your chance to get to know your neighbors, support a good cause and make an impact in the community.” Some 503 volunteers participated in last year’s Trash Bash event, committing 1,509 hours to cleaning up the community. This level of participation resulted in 2,680 pounds of litter and 400 pounds of recyclable material being removed from Irving streets.

Event organizers are asking for prospective participants to commit to participating as soon as possible and help spread the word. To register or for more information, visit cityofirving.org/KIB or call (972) 721-2175. n

The general public also is invited to donate to the Irving Animal Services animal assistance fund, which promotes resident safety, and ensures that animals are provided a safe and healthy environment. Visit cityofirving. org/animal-services/donate.asp to make a donation. For more information, visit dfwpetmatch.com or call Irving Animal Services at (972) 721-2256. n

There is not a minimum age requirement or maximum number of volunteers for the cleanup, so everyone can participate. The cleanup celebrates a partnership among KIB, the Parks and Recreation Department and Solid Waste Services. KIB will provide supplies such as litter pickers, trash and recycle bags and gloves. Lunch will be provided after the cleanup.

City Holiday, No Trash Collection u

“Irving is among a growing number of cities and nonprofits in the Metroplex coming together for a day of matching great pets with wonderful families,” said Animal Services Manager Corey Price. “Local shelters are full of abandoned or surrendered pets and we are sure families can find their next pet at a shelter.”
