On 21 August, Alexey Koval’s initiative group For Healthy Lifestyle cleaned one of Korostyshiv residents’ favorite recreation
All local enthusiasts gathered for the Clean-up Day—even rainy weather couldn’t stop them. Buckets, shovels, brooms—everything came in handy. 75 huge packs of garbage were collected over 5 hours of painstaking work, and the territory of the quarry became a clean, tidy, and comfortable recreation zone.
One of the most committed supporters of cleanliness, who preferred to stay anonymous, helped haul away the garbage.
The initiative group is planning to install garbage bins on the territory of the quarry soon to tackle the littering problem in the favorite recreation spot.
Alexey Koval, the group’s chairman, is grateful to every participant and encourages the residents to love their hometown and not to litter there.
