Curaçao Clean Up collects 250 thousand kilos of garbage

CleanupWILLEMSTAD - Last Saturday there were over 250 thousand kilos of waste cleaned up during the Curaçao Clean Up event. The waste collected at Klein Curaçao is not included in this total.

That means that over the past three years, a total of more than one million kilos of waste has been cleaned up during the three editions of the cleanup events.

There were a record number of volunteers this year, 2600, yet there was less waste cleaned up than the first two editions. This is according to the organization because this year they focused more on litter such as bottles and plastic bags, then store bulky waste, but also because there is simply less dirt on the island.
