A Warm Welcome!
Thank you for visiting the official website of Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society! CVRCS is a not-for-profit society that was formed in 2002 by a group of dedicated people who regularly use the Chilliwack/Vedder River for recreational purposes. Our goal is to keep this magnificent river clean so its beauty can still be appreciated by many generations to come.
On this website, you will be able to gather important information such as our upcoming cleanup events, Adopt-a-River program and tips that you may use to improve your local watershed's health. If you utilize the Chilliwack Vedder River frequently, we welcome you to participate in our group river cleanups or adopt a section of the river. Your support is important to CVRCS.

Get Involved: Hot Spot Cleanup Squad
What is our Hot Spot Cleanup Squad?
The Hot Spot Cleanup Squad is a group of volunteers that has agreed to help outside of regularly scheduled cleanups. In coordination with the Fraser Riverkeepers, we are notified of local illegal dumping spots and we coordinate the pickup of that garbage and its proper disposal.
The Hot Spot Cleanup Squad is not responsible for doing the cleanup itself, the individual or group that reports the illegal dumping spot agrees to gather the garbage and the Hot Spot Cleanup Squad agrees to collect it.
Hot Spot Cleanup Squad volunteers:
- Have a flexible schedule and can be called with relatively short notice (3-5 days)
- Ideally own a truck and/or a utility trailer although this is not a requirement
- Have a passion for keeping our Chilliwack Vedder River Valley clean
Please email us for more info and to add yourself to the list

1. location of the incident
2. description of the materials dumped
4. be careful as some material may be hazardous.
