Members of the Muir Creek Protection Society did another clean up

One big mess

People are illegally dumping garbage in rural areas

Elleen Christian and Alanda Carver of the Muir Creek Protection Society cleaned up Muir Creek on Nov. 5 and removed a giant pile of garbage dumped by the bridge. Five members of the society filled an entire 4x8x20 dumpster to the top with garbage. Dumping has been getting worse in the area. This is the third time this year the society has cleaned up near the creek. Pictured is the pile of roofing materials removed on Saturday. Lots chum and coho salmon were seen  spawning in the creek.
