The appointment is set at 2 p.m. at Allée Antoine Pinay on Barthelasse Island in Avignon (Vaucluse) for a big cleaning operation on the occasion of World Cleanup Day this Saturday, September 18.
The operation is organized by the Lucioles and Eco-Lab Environnement associations which give gloves, collection bags, instructions and sorting information. At the end of the two hours the waste will be weighed and the result will be part of the nationwide cleanup movement.
Other cleaning operations in the Vaucluse
Cleaning operations will be organized in other towns in the department such as Venasque, Entraigues-sur-la-Sorgues, Pontet, Morières-les-Avignon, Jonquières, Sorgues, Apt, Caderousse, Monteux, Mormoiron, Bédoin, Courthézon and Beaumont-du-Ventoux.
Last year, despite the Covid, the mobilization for the World Clean Up Day had been very strong in the Vaucluse and one waste collection record in the department had been beaten. 101 tonnes of waste had been collected during the various cleaning operations.
