The yearly effort to clean up Victoria’s Inner Harbour has returned.
VicPD officers, members of the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority (GVHA), staff from local businesses and more than 50 volunteers will come together to clean debris, glass and garbage along the harbour on Friday Sept. 13 from 9 to 11 a.m. for the annual Clean Up the Shores event.
It's Clean Up The Shores tomorrow! We wouldn't be able to tackle as much of the Inner Harbour shoreline without great partners! Look for 50+ volunteers between 9 and 11! #yyj #vicharbour #cleanuptheshores2019 https://t.co/UUICwJBnKi

An official weigh-in of the collected garbage will happen at Fisherman’s Wharf at 11 a.m.
In the six years it’s been running, Clean Up the Shores has removed hundreds of kilograms of garbage from Victoria’s harbour. The Victoria-initiated event aims to help clear the shores and raise awareness of the harbour environment.
