Twelve members of the Vernon ATV Club rounded up 1260kg of garbage that took 3 trucks and 2 trailers to transport to the dump. We also retrieved a burnt up trailer that had been dumped over the side of one of the switchbacks, the trailer went separately to metal recycling.
The morning started off with light rain but the day cleared up as we worked and turned out to be a pretty nice afternoon. Garbage was collected from the bottom of King Eddy Road up to 7km then we jumped to the Bear Lake and Aberdeen Lake Rec sites where we picked up a number of TVs, mattresses and random junk.
The final tally amongst the 1260kg taken to the landfill included:
- 5 TVs
- 11 mattresses
- couches and chairs
- hundreds of shotgun shells
- lots of broken bottles and smushed cans
- much stunky and gross stuff
- one suspicious timbits box
