About Us

Mission Environmental Stewardship Society (MESS) was created to support the efforts of citizens, organizations, businesses, and government to prevent and remove littered and illegally dumped waste.

 

To achieve this, MESS administers comprehensive waste diversion and anti-litter programming in beautiful Mission, British Columbia. We have been a part of the community since 1994. First formed under the Mission Environmental Society, we branched off in 1998 to form what was known as "Mission Adopt-A-Block Society". After substantial growth, and the development of several highly successful education and research based programs, we expanded into the Mission Environmental Stewardship Society in 2017.

Under the direction of a dedicated board of directors, we have grown into a multi-faceted organization that encourages citizens of Mission to participate in a pro-active approach to keeping Mission clean and a healthier place to live. Community members join forces to eradicate litter, removing it from streams, roads, trails, and parks to prevent its entry into the Fraser River; a direct route to the ocean.
