Tons of waste piled up on the Marseille coast … This is the consequence of the torrential rains that fell on the city while since the end of September, the garbage collectors of Marseille have been on strike. They have just returned to work. To cope, hundreds of inhabitants of Marseille meet to clean the beaches.
With the bad weather, the 5000 tons of waste accumulated in the streets landed directly at the seaside. 650 cleaners ensure the collection of waste. “What we see around us is pollution, it’s cans, plastics galore, it’s household waste, waste that can be easily eliminated if we pay attention to our consumption. And us, we are annoyed, we are disgusted, frankly it kills us, because it’s been 4 years that we have been breaking our heads every weekend, all our free time to organize pickups, we have collected tons of waste. And that’s what nature puts in our mouths in 48 hours. Now I hope these pictures will reflect people“, deplores a volunteer.
Several associations fear major pollution.
