FREE! Broom Drop Off at Sooks Parks Yard

Event Details

This event finished on 04 June 2022

Sooke residents can bring their cut broom to a drop off station at the District of Sooke Parks Yard at 2070 Kaltasin Road on Saturday, May 21 and Saturday, June 4 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Scotch broom is an invasive woody shrub first introduced to southern Vancouver Island in the 1850s and grows throughout the region. It presents a wildfire hazard and competes with native plant species, even changing the chemistry of the soil. The district encourages residents to remove broom or participate in a local “broom busting event” hosted by Sooke Broombusters or Juan de Fuca Community Trails.

This service is being made available at no cost to Sooke residents thanks to funding from the Union of BC Municipalities FireSmart Community Funding program. Sooke is located within the Wildland Urban Interface zone meaning our community is at a greater risk of a devasting wildfire. Homeowners play an important role in wildfire prevention; they can directly reduce the wildfire risk and damage to their property by using FireSmart principles.
