BACKROAD TRASH BASH

2020 Event Update

Due to the current pandemic, the 2020 Backroad Trash Bash is cancelled. We hope it will return in 2021!

The funding of tipping fees for illegal dump sites cleaned up by volunteers - the SCRD's Good Samaritan Program - is continuing.

View the SCRD's Illegal Dumping webpage for more information about this issue.
