Participants cleaned the Beach and picked up items, such as cigarette butts, paper & plastic bags, and disposable cutlery from the popular shoreline.

Waste management has always been one of the key environmental priorities for The Sustainable City, with sufficient in-built recycling and disposable systems.

Last year the community achieved an 89% waste diversion rate, making significant strides in its mission toward a more sustainable future.

The initiative is part of a global movement comprising 20 million people from over 180 countries that held cleanup activities to rid the planet of trash, cleaning up waste from many different locations worldwide.
