We would rather not describe the garbage and waste that we have found or mention their contents. Even though the photos of the garbage and the bulky waste are not a photogenic sight, we have attached some of them in order to illustrate some of the things that one can find in the Jankomir grove at the Sava embankment near Lučko. We underestimated the will and imagination of people who are ready to make a serious effort and dispose of unimaginable things in the forest. We brought “only” 70 garbage bags with us, but hastily had to go and buy more.
A total of 110 garbage bags and approximately 4 tons of bulky waste was collected and recovered by the local waste management company Čistoća on the same day. Concerning this action, we have mixed feelings: we are modestly joyous that we have managed to complete this task, but also overcome with grief because we had to witness that something like this even exist out in nature.
To end on a brighter note, we hope that we, as the employees of the company Končar D&ST, have manged to contribute to a cleaner environment. This was an astounding experience for us, we have definitely learned something new, passed our knowledge down to the next generation, and maybe even inspired someone else to do the same, because a common good does not belong to an individual, it belongs to all of us, and therefore we should take great care of it.
Končar D&ST + Lil Cleaning Bears = Clean, clean!
