The cleanup efforts at Silver Creek about two weeks ago yielded a half-ton of metal and almost 800 pounds of trash.
The Four Wheel Drive Association of B.C. hosted a cleanup in East Harrison on Saturday, September 12. Volunteers hauled away 1,280 pounds of metal and 794 pounds of garbage. The size of the mess wasn’t unexpected as volunteers figured they would be dealing with a fair amount of litter and debris following the logn Labour Day weekend.
Individuals and small groups fanned out to the area surrounding Silver Creek, which is about 33 kilometres along East Harrison Forest Service Road.
Debris included a graffiti-covered husk of a rusted-out coup, sans the tires and wheels, The bed of a Ford F150 and lawn chairs.
