Kitimat Scouts were hard at work fundraising Saturday April 10th with a road side clean up. They started at the Bridge over Hirsch Creek and worked up to Forest Avenue.
“We did roadside cleanup and we picked up close to 50 to 60 bags of garbage from Forest Avenue to Hirsch Creek Bridge,” said Scouter Doug Hughan.
Typical garbage found along the highway included roofing materials, pop cans, beer cans, beer bottles, food wrappers, plastic bags and articles of clothing. Two of the stranger items included a "Road Closed" sign which had been knocked over and a snow plow blade.
“If the people of Kitimat could take more pride in the road way that leads into their town and keep it a little cleaner, I would not mind finding less garbage,” said Hughan.
The Wolf Cub Scouts will be taking care of a similar area on Sunday.Members of Kitimat First United Church have also been picking up garbage along the roadside.
