Clean-up campaign highlights Rock litter problem

Over 300 volunteers, collaborators, supporters and sponsors pulled off another Gibraltar-wide clean up this weekend, highlighting the litter problem that impacts many areas of the Rock.

The “mountain of waste” was created at the Eco Park facility, with volunteers ferrying load after load to the site based at Flint Road.

Various skips were also filled with the final removal of all rubbish collected to be completed in the next few days.

“Volunteers should be very proud of their efforts to help make Gibraltar’s natural environment cleaner, liberated from plastic menace and other harmful materials,” the organisers of Clean Up The World said in a statement issued by the ESG.

“Their hard work and hands-on action has also helped  highlight Gibraltar’s litter problem.”

“Contractors’ waste compounded the build up of litter present at various hotspots. These matters will be taken up by the campaigners with all relevant authorities.”

A long held objective of the campaign was also achieved this week with the removal of a large steel drum at Seven Sisters by GibDock cranes.

The organisers thanks everyone involved for their efforts.
