Two Tons of Rubbish removed by Nepal Army from Everest RegionApr 24, 2019
A few days ago, Nepal Army (NA) has lifted two tons of non-bio-degradable wastage from the Mt. Everest region under the cleanup campaign.
The campaign was organized as a part of the Wildlife Week conducted by the Office of Sagarmatha National Park in coordination with various governmental and non-governmental organizations, the mission was started from April 14, 2019, according to NA.
It was also reported that the army will be air-lifting a ton of non-bio-degradable wastes by its helicopters to Kathmandu and hand the waste to Blue Waste to Value Company, after the clean-up session. While the remaining ton of the waste has been already flown to the NA barrack in Okhaldhunga for treatment, according to a statement issued by the army.
It sounds good that it has been cleaned up. But, what Nepal Calls You wants to urge to all hikers, trekkers and climbers are " Please bring you trashes back home". We must be conscious regarding this issue.
