It was another successful year for the Kitimat River Clean Up last Sunday (Sept. 13), with Kitimat residents joining the District of Kitimat and KUTE in picking up garbage from the Kitimat River and its shores.
104 people attended this year, a slightly lower number from previous years, which was likely due to the COVID-19 restrictions in place at the event.
The District said Geier Waste Services, which donated the bin and removed the waste, said they estimated somewhere over 150 lbs of refuse was collected from the clean up. Plus some full tubs of oil/lubricant, which were removed from the Cablecar boat launch area — and were disposed of according to proper guidelines — it came to an estimated 200-plus lbs of material collected.
The District would like to thank you to all those who volunteered their time to pitched in and help keep the Kitimat River clean!
