LUTZ - If history is any indication, some 400 volunteers will scatter through Lutz on Saturday morning, clearing the roadsides of trash.
The fifth annual Lutz Trash Bash is timed to coincide with the Great American Cleanup, a countywide effort.
It's not too late for volunteers to join, said Brian Sherman, the Hillsborough County sheriff's deputy coordinating the Lutz effort. People can come to the Old Lutz School, 18819 U.S. 41, between 7 and 8 a.m. to pick up empty trash bags. At 11 a.m., volunteers will be given hot dogs and soft drinks.
In between, they'll be enticed with goodies hidden in plastic eggs among the trash. Sherman said his helpers planned to fill the eggs with coupons for cash or for fast food.
He said last year's cleanup drew 400 people. He decided this year to procure a pair of trash containers with more space than last year's. "They're big Dumpsters," Sherman said.
