1,500 kilograms of garbage cleaned up from B.C. beaches


From the shores of Salt Spring Island to Horseshoe Bay, from the Sunshine Coast to Campbell River, hundreds of BC Ferries’ employees participated in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup from July 6 – 16 to help keep B.C. beaches pristine.

BC Ferries is one of the largest corporate teams in B.C. to partake in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup with more than 275 staff volunteering to help in over 20 separate cleanup events.

Volunteers collected well over 1,500 kilograms of debris from the shorelines in and around the communities.

A few of the unusual items they collected include a broken kayak, a shopping cart and a baby stroller.
