World Cleanup Day is an annual social action program aimed at fighting waste. At the same time, the emphasis is made on cleaning forests, glades, and the banks of water bodies. Where possible, separate waste collection is organized.
In addition, the participants conduct educational events, promote a modern waste management system, separate collection and recycling, and an environmentally friendly lifestyle.

Due to this, 3.9 thousand cubic meters of garbage have been collected," the department recalled.
