Submitted article–On April 6, the Sierra Club of Haida Gwaii invites all south end communities to participate in the 6th AnnualGreat Garbage Grab. Like previous years, the aim is to clean the roadside of Highway 33 from Haydn Turner Campground to Miller Creek. “We are excited to organize the sixth anniversary of the cleanup of the streets and highway,” said Sierra Club director and campaign leader, Dana Adams.This year’s roadside cleanup is scheduled for this Sunday, (April 6) from 11 am to 2 pm, meeting at the Visitor Centre parking lot. Participants will be assigned a section of roadside to clean up, at their choosing. Snacks, beverages, garbage bags and gloves, generously donated by the City Centre and the Co-op in Skidegate, will be provided by organizers. A special thanks goes out to O’Brien Road and Bridge for the use of a dump truck for hauling the trash to the landfill. Last year, there was three-quarters of a dump truck load cleaned from our roadside. New this year is the guarantee from the Sierra Club that it will not rain!
