Moon gazers leave tons of trash on Sanya beaches after Mid-Autumn Festival
Mid-Autumn Festival revelers left 40 tons of garbage at public parks and beaches, including 21 tons at Xiaodonghai and Dadonghai beaches, the Environmental Sanitation Bureau said on Tuesday, reports 0898.net.
On the morning of September 13, the department dispatched nearly 700 cleaning workers to collect the trash across the city after the moon-gazing event.
“We started to clear up the trash at 6 o’clock and it took us more than 1 hour to clear up one third of the beach”, said a cleaning worker at Sanya Bay.
On the moon-gazing night, many residents and tourists crowded at Dadonghai beach to celebrate the festival with burning wax treatment.
Waste napkins, mooncakes, empty bottles, boxes and barbecues were discharged in many public parks and beaches after the treatment.
Many residents and tourists should pay attention to improving their celebrating behaviors on the environmental protection while carrying on this unique traditional custom, said an official of the local civilization office.
