Veolia's Coastal Cleanup Day
On 3 December 2022, Veolia Hong Kong co-organized the Coastal Cleanup Day with The Green Earth, to take the initiative in safeguarding our shorelines and preserving marine biodiversity.
Over 40 volunteers from Veolia Hong Kong assembled at Lung Kwu Tan, Tuen Mun to assist in the cleaning up of marine refuse on the beach and preventing trash from entering the marine environment.
More than 100 kgs of garbage, including foamed plastic, cans, cigarettes, used kites, and even worn construction materials were collected within two hours. The operation also involved sorting and recording the varieties of waste collected to understand waste accumulation in the area. The trash was brought to the adjacent waste collection station for transporting to refuse transfer station and landfill for further processing.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in this, with all your enthusiasm, together we can turn the tide against marine pollution, one step at a time.
