In the interest of public health, the 2021 annual Rivers, Lakes, Bays n’ Bayous TRASH BASH has been re-imagined this year due to safety precautions related to COVID-19. The large community gathering will not be held at the Dickinson Hwy 3 Boat Ramp, BUT, Keep Dickinson Beautiful is encouraging, families and small groups, to organize themselves to cleanup the City, beginning Thursday, March 25 through Sunday, March 28th. Together we can get this mess cleaned up before it gets into Dickinson Bayou and Galveston Bay because NO ONE WANTS TO GO FISHING FOR GARBAGE!

Bayou banks, ditches and roadside litter is worse than ever and we need everyone’s help in removal and disposal. Keep Dickinson Beautiful can provide garbage bags, and loan your volunteers litter grabbers and safety vests, just notify us of your event via email:

All we need from you to bash the trash, is your involvement in picking up litter, photos, a count of trash bags and debris collected, the location, and if your group is family, friends or organization.
