Surrey MP tackles the trash

Randeep Sarai and volunteers cleaned up Brownsville Bar Park on Saturday

Surrey Centre Liberal MP Randeep Sarai staged a “community cleanup challenge” this past weekend at Brownsville Bar Park in Whalley, rounding up about nine bags of trash, including a bicycle tire someone had tossed.

“We collected a lot of garbage along the beach and park areas, from old car parts to plastic bags and empty cigarette packs,” Sarai told the Now-Leader.

“We had about 24 volunteers who helped clean up,” he said.

The “challenge” ran for about two hours on Saturday, Sept. 8 at the bar near the Pattullo Bridge.

“It was part of our national community cleanup challenge where Liberal MPs organized community cleanup events supported by local volunteers,” Sarai said.
