Harbour Debris Society set to meet July 16th

Their work goes about pretty well un-noticed by many, but the local society that is dedicated towards ensuring that Prince Rupert Harbour remains free of debris, is ready to approach the summer months and their plans towards clean up and disposal.

The Prince Rupert Harbour Debris Society is hosting its Annual General Meeting on Monday, July 16th, planning a 3 PM session at the Offices of the Port of Prince Rupert at the Atlin Terminal.

The meeting is open to the public and provides a glimpse into the work that the Society does.

The Society which is volunteer based has been around since 1983, with their work load growing as the Prince Rupert waterfront has become more active and ever changing.

Their work involves collecting and disposing of a range of combustible materials that pose navigational hazards towards shipping in waters in and around Prince Rupert Harbour.

The Port of Prince Rupert provided some background into their work a few years ago, part of a notification related to a Debris Burning session in the fall of 2014.

You can learn more about their work and what plans they have for 2018 at Monday's meeting.
