Volunteer Effort Marks Largest Shoreline Cleanup in Canadian History

Nov 30, 2016

The effects of the magnitude-9 earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011 are still felt around the world. Hundreds of volunteers recently removed more than 85,000 lbs. of plastic, tires, boating gear and other garbage from the shores of Vancouver Island. Much of the debris washed up in the period following the disaster in Japan.

The shoreline cleanup effort stretched nearly the entire west coast of Vancouver Island, making it the largest of its kind in Canadian history.

The volunteers removed trash and loaded it onto a barge, where it was then shipped to Delta, British Columbia. From there, the debris was separated into reusables, recyclables and landfill categories and trucked off accordingly. The government of Japan donated $1 million to the project.
