World Cleanup 2012
On 22nd of September we've organized the cleanup in different towns/villages from one of the regions of Belgium (Flanders) and one river cleanup in the other region (Wallonia). This year we decided to just have a pilot cleanup to prepare for next year when we will have the action in the whole country. The organizer was our coordinator for the Flanders region and the initiator of Let's do it Belgium, Jef Helderweert We have not received the final results yet. We have organized cleanups mainly in towns/villages and not so much in forests/field or on highways. There was also one river cleanup (involving more towns). The cleanup was very well organized in cooperation with the local waste management company who helped us with gloves, bags and sometimes grabbers which made it quite easy on us. In most of the places the garbage was collected selectively (waste, glass and metal). In each city/town/village we had one local area coordinator. We involved the schools as well (about half of the participants were school students, information still to be completed) Next year we will organize it in the other region of Belgium also and in Brussels as well.
In Belgium illegal dump sites are not very common. This year we have focused on cities, therefore the situation of illegal dump sites is not well clarified.
We have created the team for the cleanup : 6 people in the core team (+ or -)
About 700 EUR, most of it from our pocket
