TRASH BASH: Volunteers Cleanup Des Moines
People will celebrate Earth Day a little early by picking up trash in Des Moines Friday. This is the 7th year for the Trash Bash, and organizers say the event has grown. Des Moines Parks and Recreation Assistant Director Ben Page says about 1,200 people will pick up garbage. Only 25 people helped the first year. Last year, 1,100 volunteers collected 6,000 pounds of trash.
