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. 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 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.

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 below to help us better organize this fantastic event. Thank you in advance for your support!!
