Fraser Valley Illegal Dumping Alliance

 FVIDA clean-up, 2021

Since officially launching in 2015, FVIDA’s efforts have removed upwards of 125 tonnes of illegally dumped waste from sensitive freshwater habitat and contributed to a 60% increase in reporting of dumping to Conservation Officers.

FBC provides secretariat support to the Fraser Valley Illegal Dumping Alliance (FVIDA), a coalition of citizens, non-profits, businesses, organizations, and local government dedicated to finding solutions to the issue of ongoing illegal dumping in Chilliwack and Fraser Valley.

The main goal of FVIDA is to raise awareness and inspire behavioural changes to curb illegal dumping. This is tackled through a combination of large clean-up events, small hot-spot cleanups, signage, education outreach, and social media.

The FVIDA hosts annual clean-ups that draw hundreds of volunteers and supporters. Many others clean wilderness and remote areas through the year to protect important fish-bearing streams, rivers and watershed habitats. FVIDA also strives to inform the public about responsible ways to dispose of waste, in order to sustain healthy environments for all.

Learn more on the FVIDA webpage, hosted on the Fraser Riverkeeper website.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
