JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two Missouri agencies are encouraging residents to spend April cleaning up the state’s roadsides, parks, rivers and trails as part of the sixth annual “trash bash.”

Missouri’s Conservation and Transportation departments are sponsoring the event, which also includes educational efforts in schools, community events, Earth Day celebrations and media promotions.

Organizers say programs like the trash bash help offset the cost of cleaning up litter and let the two agencies devote resources to other priorities.

Volunteers will receive thank-you pins commemorating the 30th birthday of Peanut the Turtle, who has lived with the Conservation Department since 1993.

The turtle crawled into a discarded plastic six-pack ring when it was young, causing its shell to be peanut-shaped as the turtle grew.
