Before and After: Quatse River Dumpsite Cleanup

The area looks spotless thanks to volunteers who cleaned up the site

Employees from the Quatse River Fish Hatchery and Badinotti Net Services donated their time to help cleanup the massive garbage pile located near the Quatse River. Badinotti donated the use of a backhoe and Fox Disposal donated bin to help get the area cleared, and Patrick Donaghy Manager of Operations at the Regional District of Mount Waddington waved the tipping fees at 7 Mile Landfill.
