On October 21st, 2018, United By Blue , Lazy Dog Restaurants, and Get Outdoors Nevada joined forces for a cleanup of the Tropicana Flamingo Wash Trail outside of Las Vegas, NV! With a crew of 15 volunteers, the team was able to pick up 198 lbs. of trash and recycling in just two hours, preventing litter from entering the Wash and local waterways. Among bags of bottle caps and roadside trash, volunteers brought in some strange items for our Weird Trash Competition, including a TV and a sidekick phone. This was United By Blue's first cleanup in Nevada, and the event marked our 48th state to see a UBB Cleanup in its borders! All in all, this cleanup was a great community event that left our trails and waterways cleaner than we found them.
United By Blue thanks our wonderful partners and volunteers for their support of this cleanup, with special thanks to Lazy Dog Restaurants for the cleanup snacks, and Get Outdoors Nevada for the provided supplies.
