An explosive waste hunt in the Grisettes district of Montpellier

Les déchets récupérés. D.R.

Des kilos de déchets ont été récupérés par les bénévoles.

Samedi 23 avril, une vingtaine de volontaires a participé à l’opération de nettoyage organisée par le comité de quartier. Aux détritus habituels, se sont ajoutés des vélos et trottinettes cassés, venant grossir les rangs des vingt sacs poubelle amassés.

A distressing observation

Yaré Diagne, the president of the neighborhood committee, expresses his dismay at this situation: "We note, not without sadness, a constant increase, of ;one year on the next, quantities of waste collected. This is a distressing observation. I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart all the volunteers who helped remove this waste from our streets, showing a remarkable commitment to the preservation of our environment", explains -he.
