The Dawoodi Bohra community of the greater Vancouver area organised a voluntary cleanup and trash removal drive along Lane Creek and Harbour Avenue in Mission, BC, on Sunday March 1st, 2020.

Approximately 350 lbs of garbage and plastic waste was collected and delivered to the local disposal facility.

The cleanup drive which is part of ‘Turning the Tide’ was supported by the Mission Environmental Stewardship Society led by Michele Chapman and her team. It also falls under the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, a national conservation program that provides Canadians the opportunity to take action in their communities wherever water meets land, one bit of trash at a time.
