April 3 & 4: Trash Bash
The City’s annual Trash Bash event had to be postponed last year last year due to COVID-19. This year it will be held as a virtual event, where individuals, families, or small groups (fewer than 10 people) can hold cleanups on April 3-4. Volunteers will use the KBB app to register, check-in, and submit data. For the City of Melbourne to receive credit for clean-ups, participants must select the Trash Bash Initiative in the app. More information is available on the Keep Brevard Beautiful website.
