Sooke ATV Club Environmental Clean Up Day

Sooke ATV Club Environmental Clean Up Day

Saturday August 13th saw the Sooke ATV Club hold its 3rd annual environmental clean up day. This year the club traveled just west of Jordan River to an area that has seen an increase in dumping over the last few years. An old vehicle, derelict travel trailer, & many other forms of waste were disposed of. The Club was able to fill 2 large waste bins in a few short hours, many hands made for quick work. Club members were then treated to a BBQ lunch after all their efforts.

Illegal Dumping

Sooke ATV Club Environmental Clean Up Day

Illegal dumping of garbage, construction waste and big items like a boat or old camper is quite common in our area if you see or suspect anyone of doing this please do not approach them, just take photos and document their license plate and vehicle information and report it to 1-877-952-7277 which is the RAPP (report all poachers or polluters) hotline.

A huge thank you to all of our club sponsors this year who were generous enough to donate the funding and equipment to make this years clean up day possible!
