Here are a few images from Route 16’s Clean Olle which took place on February 14.
There was a good group of volunteers out for this month along with Olle Founder Suh Myeong-suk who walked, collected, and talked with everyone as they went along the coastal section.
A lot of the trash was a mixture of that brought in on the tide and from tourists leaving behind wrappers and plastic drinks cups in rental car rest areas.
A couple of years ago Route 16 was given a really good clean for the walking festival. Yet since that time the trash has come back.
The support team provided much needed refreshments along the route with some pleasant breaks in front of the ocean.
March will see Clean Olle tackle Route 3 (to be fully confirmed) on the south-east tip of the island.
