The Fraser Valley Illegal Dumping Alliance (FVIDA) is a coalition of citizens, businesses, organizations, and local government dedicated to finding solutions to the issue of ongoing illegal dumping in Chilliwack. The main goal of FVIDA is to raise awareness and inspire behavioural changes to curb illegal dumping. We do this through a combination of large cleanup events, small ‘hot-spot’ cleanups, signage, education outreach, and social media campaigns.

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.
