    2023 Backroad Trash Bash – Thank You!

    The SCRD would like to thank all of the volunteers who joined together for the 10th Annual Backroad Trash Bash on Saturday, September 16. Thanks to all your help 23 sites and the roadsides of Pender Harbour were cleaned up.

    Through your efforts 4,830 kilograms of waste, 8 appliances and 86 tires were removed from the backroads from Middle Point to Egmont. Volunteers were very surprised to find lots of cigarette butts considering how dry the conditions were since the last roadside clean up and staff would like to remind residents that appliances are free to drop at the Pender Harbour Transfer Station.

    Volunteers included community residents, members of Sunshine Coast Off-Road Club, and representatives from AJM Disposal, BC Natural Resources Office, BC Conservation Service, Salish Soils and the SCRD.

    Special thanks to Pender Harbour Hikers and Pender Harbour Lions Park for helping to set up the event, Don White for donating time and heavy machinery to get harder to reach items, and to sponsors RONA Madeira Park Store, IGA Madeira Park and Kleindale Supply LTD for your donations of supplies for the volunteers.
