While it was the fifth year for the Confluence Trash Bash March 23, it was the first year for Florissant residents, and it has been labeled a success.
Approximately 67 volunteers came out to St. Ferdinand Park, and teams helped collect nearly 20 cubic yards of trash, according to a city news release. The teams helped clean up the creek bank at St. Ferdinand Park, John Knox Church and along Paddock Creek, near Parker and Derhake roads.
Mayor Tom Schneider congratulated City Engineer Tim Barrett for his coordination efforts, and thanked everyone for participating.
The clean up also took place at the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge and Creve Coeur Lake.
