                                      Pesticide Free!


The Municipality of Maple Ridge has partnered with the Campaign for Pesticide Reduction (CPR) to promote the reduction of pesticides used cosmetically.

Every time you apply a synthetic, chemical- based pesticide to your lawn and garden, you are exposing your family, neighbors, pets, fish, beneficial insects and wildlife to a wide range of harmful chemicals.

In 2004 over 3,500 people in Maple Ridge signed a petition asking that the cosmetic use of pesticides be restricted.

There are alternatives…

…and they work!
