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, is in the process of calculating how much waste was actually removed from the riverbanks. They will update the District once they have the final weight.
Thank you to all those who pitched in to help keep the Kitimat River clean!
