Great garbage grab Sunday

  • Apr. 20, 2005 11:00 a.m.

Sunday’s your chance to get out and enjoy some great spring weather while cleaning up your community. The South End Teen Centre in Charlotte along with the QC Visitor Info Centre and the Sierra Club will once again be out scooping up the litter lying on our roadsides and ditches. All over Haida Gwaii this Sunday we’d like to invite people to get out and
beautify our fragile coastal travel routes.
In Queen Charlotte, we will be getting together at the VIC to assign routes and distribute gloves and bags by 11 am. From the Cemetery in QC to Balance Rock in Skidegate, folks of all ages will be out putting trash in its place.
And don’t forget the post game show! We’re getting together again at the VIC after 2 pm to enjoy a BBQ and award special theme prizes for things like the weirdest or most useful trash that turns up. We’ve been averaging around 75 large bags collected for each of our past 2 years of grabbing!
