2019 Event Information

You are invited to join the SCRD onSaturday, September 21, 2019 from
11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
at the
Seaside Centre, 5790 Toredo Street, Sechelt for the annual Backroad Trash Bash community clean-up!

This year’s clean-up will target illegal dump sites from Halfmoon Bay to Roberts Creek.

Volunteers are needed! The SCRD is looking for volunteers with vehicles capable of hauling garbage (ie. pick-up trucks) as well as volunteers to help clean the illegal dump sites.

On the event day, volunteers are assigned a cleanup site, in teams they head out and clean up a site, drop the collected materials off at the Sechelt Landfill, then sit back and enjoy a free BBQ lunch and opportunities to win great prizes!

To pre-register as a volunteer, please contact infrastructure@scrd.ca or call 604-885-6806 with the following information:

  • Name and number of volunteers
  • Organization, company or group name
  • If you have a vehicle capable of hauling garbage and extra seats for carpooling OR if you are looking for a ride
