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 125 tons (250,000lbs!) from the Nevada 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.
