The Coast Mountain Bike Trail Association (CMBTA) led a successful backwoods cleanup off the B&K logging road in Roberts Creek on Saturday, April 10.
Six volunteers cleaned garbage out of an abandoned motor home, which was then towed to Bypass Auto Wrecking for safe disposal. With extra time and energy on their hands, the volunteers then cleaned up three more sites in the popular hiking and biking area, filling a disposal bin donated by Coast Bin Rentals.
“The main target of the cleanup was an abandoned motor home that has been sitting under the power lines, slowly falling apart and being filled with garbage, for several years,” said CMBTA member Tim Howard, who organized the effort.
“We ran a Go Fund Me campaign to pay for pumping, hauling and disposing of the motor home, and hit our target in under 24 hours. The community support for this project has been huge. It was a satisfying sight to see the motor home finally being hauled away.”
The CMBTA is a local non-profit that builds, maintains, protects and advocates for mountain biking trails on the Sunshine Coast – see www.cmbta.ca for more information.
CMBTA extended its thanks to Coast Bin Rentals, Bypass Auto Wrecking, Walt’s Towing, Startek Industries, Jenkins Construction, Vernon Construction and all the individual donors and volunteers for their support.
