Update October 25:

The Post and Courier has a small collection of photos from when everyone got crazy for some trash; go check 'em out.

First reporting:

On Saturday, October 24, College of Charleston student teams will grab a grocery cart, garbage bags and gloves and dash into downtown Charleston to participate in the annual litter-collecting scavenger hunt, Dash for Trash.

Each type of litter has a different value associated with it and teams that find one of the Golden Tickets get to add even more points to their score. The student teams that show the most spirit, collect the most recyclables and accumulate the most points will win prizes.

Dash for Trash is an annual event that is co-sponsored by the College of Charleston Center for Civic Engagement and Keep Charleston Beautiful. Look out and cheer for dashers roaming the streets beginning at 10 a.m.
