Owner/operator Brad Miller  of BAM BAM Trucking was out showing some community spirit last week.

Miller had three of his crew and himself along with his daughter out picking up trash along Nahounli Creek as part of Pitch-In week.

The crew had picked up over 40 bags so far over the day’s work, and Miller said it was all just to help give something back to the community.

His business hauling to and from the Mt. Milligan Mine was made possible through support from the community, he said. “I encourage other contractors of the community to do the same,” said Miller.

“Pitch-in” has been extended and garbage bags and gloves can be picked up at the District of Fort St. James Office. Full bags of trash can be left along the roadside in the municipality for public works to pick up.
