2024 April River Cleanup - Saturday, April 20th
Dear Friends of the Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society,
Hurray for longer and brighter days ahead! Like us, I imagine all of you are anxiously awaiting the return of Spring. With the return of Spring comes an opportunity to once again host our annual April River cleanup.
On Saturday, April 20th we invite you and all our Adopt-A-River volunteers to join us at THOMSPON REGIONAL PARK (48600 Chilliwack Lake Rd, Chilliwack, BC) to get our beautiful Chilliwack Vedder river valley all cleaned up for Spring. Registration will be open from 8:30am to 9:30am and if you PRE-REGISTER before the event you will receive an extra raffle ticket.
To pre-register email us the following information no later than Friday, April 19th.
Full name, cell phone number, Emergency Contact name, and cell phone number. We will use this information to contact you if you don't check back in with registration at Thompson Regional Park.
All garbage will need to be returned to the bins no later than 1:30pm. Thank you to Scott and the crew at Valley Waste for donating the bins for our cleanups.
Did you know that the City of Chilliwack supports organized cleanups of illegal dumping hotspots located on public land within City boundaries and in FVRD Electoral Area E (Chilliwack River Valley) in two ways:
- Providing free Tag-a-Bag stickers for waste, or...
- Providing a free tipping pass for the Bailey Landfill (applicable for those in the FVRD Electoral Area E).
