In 2017, Republic Services partnered 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 to be done. The Mint 400 and Republic Services nearly doubled that number in 2018, clearing 22.06 tons (44,120 lbs.) of trash from our beautiful desert.
This March the group hopes to grow these numbers substantially. The Mint 400 Desert Clean-Up presented by Republic Services will be focused around the Jean OHV area – land that is not only used for The Mint 400 race course, but also for numerous races 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 and OHV areas.
Participants at the clean up will receive an official limited edition Mint 400 / Republic Services t-shirt and automatically be entered into a massive industry raffle that will include thousands of dollars in donated off-road parts, accessories and swag from industry leading companies. Additional raffle tickets will be for sale onsite and all proceeds will go towards the cleanup costs.
Companies looking to get involved or donate product to the raffle can email The Mint 400 here.
Participants are asked to bring their own drinks and snacks, plenty of warm clothes, sunscreen, and work gloves to protect your hands. You will not need an off-road vehicle to access the clean-up sites. Please pre-register using the online form to help us better organize this fantastic event. Thank you in advance for your support!!
