The fourth edition of the Mountain Clean-Up Campaign 2023, led by the Nepali Army in collaboration with various government institutions and donor organisations, recently concluded successfully.
Building on the previous year's achievement of collecting over 33 tons of waste, this year's campaign surpassed expectations with a collective determination to bring down 35 tons of waste from the mountains.
The campaign, which commenced on March 28, had focused on cleaning up four mountains—Everest, Lhotse, Annapurna and Baruntse.
A team of 97 members, including personnel from the Nepali Army and Sherpa supporters, had undertaken the task.
The team collected 35,708 kg of waste, which was transported to Kathmandu.
The waste would undergo thorough verification and be handed over to the recycling partner Creasion for segregation, recycling and proper management.
