Volunteers Collect 100 Tons of Garbage from Peruís Lake Titicaca

LIMA Ė A clean-up effort at Lake Titicaca, in southwestern Peru, located at 3,812 meters above sea level, collected on Saturday more than 100 tons of solid waste as part of an environmental protection campaign.

More than 1,500 volunteers participated in the cleaning, which involved the collection of plastic bags, disposable bottles, tires, cartons and glass near the wastewater oxidation lagoon of the Peruvian city of Puno.

The day was organized by workers of the Binational Lake Titicaca Special Project (PEBLT) with the support of young people from the Environmental Volunteer CLIP Latin America group.

The head of the Binational Special Lake Titicaca Project, Adan Quisocala, lamented to the state news agency Andina that there are people who continue to throw garbage into the lake and asked the municipalities to generate projects enabling the collection of solid waste.

The lake of more than 8,300 square kilometers is in the territory of Peru and Bolivia, and is an important tourist destination for its floating islands and pre-Inca archaeological remains.
