The Mint 400, in partnership with Republic Services, has announced an industry wide desert clean-up event Saturday, March 4th, 2023 in Jean, Nevada beginning at 9:00AM. The goal of the event is to unite the off-road community and clean up waste dumped illegally in the Jean area as well as promote sustainable habits and responsible public land use to improve Southern Nevada’s pristine desert landscape.

You do not need an off-road vehicle to access the clean-up sites.  Participants will receive an event t-shirt and automatically be entered into a massive raffle that includes thousands of dollars in donated off-road parts, accessories and swag from industry leading companies.

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. Since then, The Mint 400 Desert Clean Up presented by Republic Services has removed nearly 140 tons (280,000lbs!) from the Nevada Desert.

This March, the group hopes to grow their numbers substantially. The Mint 400 Desert Clean-Up presented by Republic Services is 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.
