In 2017, Mission residents volunteered a staggering
45 462 hours clearing litter from our streets, streams, trails, and parks.
Reducing and preventing littering and illegal dumping takes work, and its only through the tens of thousands of hours dedicated by Mission residents that we are able to do this. Each year, MESS volunteers give over 38, 000 hours of their time picking up, sorting, and responsibly disposing of waste dropped or dumped in our environment. There are many ways we can tackle this issue but we need your help. Keep reading to learn about fun and innovative ways you can help keep Mission clean.

One Time Clean-ups are a great way to tackle highly littered areas with a concentrated effort. Often, neighbourhood groups, schools, families, or concerned individuals will join forces for a single day to address a mess.
Great annual events to do a One Time Clean-up include:
BC Rivers Day
Spring Clean-up week
Great Canadian Shoreline Clean-up
Arranging a One Time Clean-up:
1. Contact MESS to inform us of the area you are
2. Let us know how many volunteers you have
