Today, Nov. 3, over twenty residents of Uzhgorod concerned with the cleanliness of their native city joined the cleanup around the Radvanka quarry. In almost two hours they collected seventy 125 liter bags of garbage!
Deputy chief oof Uzhgorod City Perinatal Center, member of the executive committee Nadiya Kholodyak said that the idea to clean up the quarry had come to her husband Volodymyr, who throughout the year comes here to swim. Last year he decided to collect garbage from this place of rest by himself. This experience proved that in order to clean up everything he needed help.
This year, he suggested to join the cleaning to the friend of the family, deputy of city council Yuriy Kostyuk. Together, they prepared invitations and placed them throughout the reservoir to engage more people. They bought garbage bags and gloves, and asked Maria Olenych, director of "AVE Mukachevo" to help with garbage removal. She responded to the initiative of activists and provided the truck free of charge.
When the the garbage was loaded on the truck the most courageous men took a swim in the quarry. The volunteers' event ended with the recital of the poem written by the organizer of the cleanup Volodymyr Kholodnyak. In the poem the author urges people to keep reservoir clean for the sake of themselves and their children.
Finally, Mr. Volodymyr thanked the management of the Mukachevo waste recycling firm and volunteers who responded to their cleaning event.
