The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is back and AspenClean is on board as site coordinator for West Vancouver for the second year running!
The Shoreline Cleanup is an ideal chance for everyone to make a difference in their communities by cleaning shorelines of potentially harmful litter.
This fall, we’re asking the community of West Vancouver (and further afield!) to come together to keep our local coastline clean and healthy for everyone, including the wildlife and people who depend on them.
Shoreline litter can leach harmful chemicals into the water, be accidentally eaten by wildlife, injure fellow humans, or entangle aquatic animals such as otters, sea turtles and birds.
This year the AspenClean Vancouver teams will be taking their natural cleaning to Bellevue Waterfront in West Vancouver – taking on some of the 178,000 cigarette filters and 47,000 food wrappers that are expected to be collected during the week long Canada wide event.
Meeting at The Beach House Restaurant at 5pm on Wednesday 25th September, AspenClean will provide all necessary equipment (gloves, garbage bags etc). For up to date information please see our blog at http://blog.aspenclean.com/2013/08/the-great-canadian-shoreline-cleanup.html
