As part of World Cleanup Day, the City of Sinj, in cooperation with numerous associations and institutions including Čistoća Cetina Region, HGSS, JVD, DVD Sinj, the Sinj Tourist Board, Biom, PD Svilaja, HPDO Koćari, PD Vukovi, Cetina Adventure Club, JU More i Krš, Croatian Forests, Kamičak, and volunteers, organizes the environmental action “Zelena Čistka – Sinj 2021.”
Interested volunteers will clean several illegal landfills in the City of Sinj in cooperation with the city partners.
After the coordination meeting on the action, locations were agreed to be cleaned of various types of waste. They include the Cetina river, from Panj to Despotuša, and the significant Sutina area landscape, with numerous illegal landfills.
The Cetina River will be cleaned by HGSS members with divers, while the volunteers will go to the Sutina area, where the employees of the Čistoća Cetina Region, JVD, and DVD Sinj will have the necessary equipment.
Gloves and waste bags will be provided for all volunteers. All interested parties should bring their cleaning tools (rakes, shovels, trowels).
Zelena Čistka is a national campaign to raise awareness of Croatian citizens about their role in waste generation and disposal. The campaign’s culmination is cleaning illegal dumps, which will be held for the tenth year in a row in Croatia. By implementing the Zelena Čistka campaign, Croatia remains part of a larger-scale story that affects citizens’ awareness of healthy habits, a cleaner environment, and an active approach to solving problems.
By cleaning our corners of the environment, we raise awareness of the human impact on the environment and the importance of responsible waste management to preserve the environment, nature, and planet Earth, which is our common good.
The cleanup action was initially scheduled for Saturday, September 18. However, due to the bad weather conditions, it was postponed to Saturday, September 25.
Participants will gather around 09:00 at the starting locations (near the bridge on Panj and in the parking lot near Sutina).
The action will last until 13:00, after which lunch will be provided for all participants.
All interested nature lovers can join the cleaning action. Please send your application to [email protected] or [email protected] with the name of the action: Zelena Čistka, as well as your name and surname.
