Geo Cachers Cache In On Trash

Geo Cachers Cache In On Trash

15/09/2017 Hi-Tech Treasure Hunters will cache in on 23rd September as they take part in a Cache In, Trash Out event at Greenwood Centre Banks Road Recreation Ground in Toton.

As part of the unique event, between 9.30.00am and 11.30pm, the Geocachers will litter pick at the park, whilst they seek out hidden treasures known as Geocaches.Four New caches will also be activated on the day.

A 'geocache' is usually a small concealed waterproof container holding a logbook for the 'treasure hunters' to sign. Larger containers may also include small toys, trinkets and trackable items which the geocacher exchanges. If items are taken out of the cache, then something of equal or greater value is left in return.

Broxtowe Borough Council will be providing litter pickers and bags on the day as part of its commitment to tackle anti-social behaviour such as litter, dog fouling and fly tipping.

Broxtowe Borough Council hid four geocaches in parks in Beeston, Kimberley, Stapleford and Kimberley in 2012.

Cache In Trash Out is an on-going environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community. Since 2002, geocachers have been dedicated to cleaning up parks and other cache-friendly places around the world.

Cache In Trash Out doesn't just happen once a year. It can easily happen on every geocache adventure. Bring a trash bag along with you on your walks in the woods and pick up the occasional piece of trash you see on the trail. Even this small act can make a huge difference.
