Volunteers for annual Cyprus cleanup to top 40000
This year’s ‘Let’s do it Cyprus’ clean-up campaign has reached its target of more than 40,000 volunteers before it has even started, Environment Commissioner Ioanna Panayiotou said on Monday.
The event is a one-day effort to clean the island of as much rubbish as possible which takes place every year in April. This year it is scheduled for April 29.
The aim was to surpass the number of 40,000 volunteers, or around 5 per cent of the population, this year. So far more than 43,000 have registered, while more are expected to do so in the following days.
