Kwalikum 2021 grad class hosts annual tree chipping, bottle drive on Jan. 2

Event serves as fundraiser for annual dry grad

Kwalikum Secondary School students are looking to help clean up after the holiday season while raising funds for their 2021 Dry Grad.

KSS students will hold a bottle drive at the school, located at 266 Village Way in Qualicum Beach and provide a Christmas tree chipping service on Jan. 2, 2021.

The bottle drive will take place between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. in front of the school roundabout. Recyclable cans and bottles can be dropped off, where students will then take care of the rest. For anyone who cannot make it down but would still like to donate, pickups will be available with the simple request of leaving your recyclables outside your residence by 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 2. KSS students will come around to collect.
