The Fun Fun Park Recycling Fair is happening this Saturday afternoon.
The fair is a free family-friendly community celebration to raise up to $5,000 for the park’s playground, which is greatly in need of major enhancements to better serve kids of all ages. With an overall goal of $35,000, ElectroRecycle – B.C.’s small appliance and power tool recycling program – has come on board to support the initiative.
ElectroRecycle is asking people to drop off their electrical products, such as toasters, microwaves, electric toothbrushes and power tools, at the event to be recycled free of charge.
There will be activities for the kids, food and a raffle.
The event runs from 1 to 5 p.m. at Fun Fun Park, 1472 128th St. in Surrey.
As well, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup is holding a number of events locally, some of which still need more volunteers to sign up.
The annual shoreline cleanup is a hands-on conservation program with a real, measurable effect in the environment both locally and globally. Cleanups are more than just collecting trash. They are examples of communities working together to create solutions to ensure the oceans and waterways are kept clean.
There will be a cleanup at Brownsville Park, at the foot of Old Yale Road, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21. The event happens rain or shine, and while drop-ins are welcome, organizers prefer people sign up ahead of time. Call Sonia at 604-290-1705 or register online at www.shorelinecleanup.ca.
Other cleanups set for Saturday that still need help include two for White Rock’s beaches. There is one for east of the pier, which begins at 9 a.m., and one for West Beach, at Oxford Street, that begins at 10 a.m. Both are calling for more participants.
