Michael-Hoke-Community-Trash-Off (1)
Community Trash Off began in 1995 with a small group of concerned citizens who joined forces to help clean trash out of Adam’s Bayou. That year paved the way for a community event that has steadily grown in scope. The Community Trash Off became a program of the Stark Foundation in 2002 when the planning for Shangri La was initiated. Today, Community Trash Off includes efforts to clean not only Adams Bayou, but also the Sabine River and the streets in Orange, Pinehurst, and West Orange.
Since inception of Community Trash Off, thousands of individuals have worked tirelessly to collect nearly 200,000 pounds of trash over 20+ years. This one annual event brings the community together with a common cause to make Orange and surrounding municipalities beautiful.
