    Name: Cowichan Valley Clean-up Effort
    Date: October 26, 2019 - October 27, 2019
    Event Description:
    Over two days in October, volunteers will be out removing illegally dumped garbage from your beautiful Cowichan Valley. Anyone wishing to join the clean up effort is welcome! There is a bit of paperwork to fill out prior to the event. Everyone working on Mt. Prevost must sign a waiver from the Municipality of North Cowichan, a Cowichan Green Community volunteer form must be completed on the day of the event and if you intend to use your own vehicle to help haul debris to Bing’s Creek, you must pre-register your plate number to avoid having to pay tipping (dump) fees. You do NOT have to attend a full day nor do you have to attend both sites. Any effort is greatly appreciated. Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes/boots. If you have these and are willing to bring them, please do: A wheel barrow, tongs for picking up litter, tarps to line your truck bed, heavy gloves, five gallon buckets to collect litter in and a drink to keep you hydrated. Cleaning supplies will be provided at site. If you wish to participate, please send an email requesting a waiver and information package. If you wish to register your vehicle license plate with Bing’s Creek (CVRD) you can send your name and license plate number and we will register your vehicle for free tipping. This has proven to be a fun day despite the job at hand. Many new faces show up each time and friendship are made. ‘Many hands make light work’. Please consider joining us for a few hours.
