Mint 400 “Dash for Trash” Call for Volunteers

How much do you love the desert? Unbelievably, the desert gets dirty! A group who uses the desert wants to keep it clean, and you can help!

An opportunity to prove just how much you about the desert will take place on Saturday, March 3, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, when off-road enthusiasts, combine with those who come out to watch various off-road events, and the Mint 400 in partnership with Republic Services, will gather at Jean, NV to participate in the second “Desert Clean-up!”

Tentative Schedule:
10:00am-11:00am – Meet & Greet and Registration
11:00am-1:15pm – The Mint 400 Republic Services Desert Clean Up
1:15pm-2:00pm – Raffle Drawings

In 2017, Republic Services collaborated with the Mint 400 for their inaugural “Dash for Trash” event. Volunteers removed 14.54 tons of waste from the Nevada desert in the Jean area, but the team identified more work had to be done. This March the group hopes to double that effort. The Mint 400/Republic Services Desert Clean-Up will be focused around the Jean OHV area – land that is not only used for The Mint 400 race course, but also for numerous events throughout the year spanning multiple off-road organizations.

The Mint 400 & Republic Services would like to invite all off-road enthusiasts and members of the Las Vegas community to spend a day in the dirt, cleaning up our race course. Participants will receive an official limited edition of the Mint400/Republic Services T-shirt and automatically be entered in a massive industry raffle that will include thousands of dollars in donated off-road parts, accessories, and swag from industry leading companies.

Those planning on helping to clean-up the desert are asked to bring their own drinks, snacks, plenty of proper clothing for the weather that day, sunscreen, and work gloves to protect your hands. You will not need an off-road vehicle to access the clean-up sites. You are being asked to pre-register on line by going to: http://themint400.com/donttrashthedesert/.
