NTYEN in collaboration with different stakeholders organized a cleaning program as one of the activities of “A pilot project: Clean Up Nepal” on June 5 to mark World Environment Day 2013. The concept of Clean Up Nepal was generated from “Clean Up the World” campaign which is a community based environmental campaign that inspires and empowers communities from every corner of the globe to clean up, fix up and conserve their environment.
More than 50 participants from youth organizations, colleges, government officials, municipality, local authorities and local communities joined together to clean some areas of Budhanagar. The trashes like plastics, wrappers (specially: cookies, noodles, chocolates, gums, tobacco), waste cloths, slippers, carpets, recharge cards, etc. were collected from six streets (Madhya Marga, Buddha Marga, Bibhuti Marga, Siddhartha Marga, Tathagat Marga and Bhawana Marga). Approximately, 600 kg of waste, which was collected from the program, was further transported by the Kathmandu Metropolitan City.
