As a Everest cleaning plan, Three-thousand kilogrammes of solid waste has been collected from the Mt Everest region so far under the Sagarmatha Cleaning Campaign. The campaign had started from April 14. Organising a press meet today in the Capital, Dandu Raj Ghimire, director general of Department of Tourism, informed that of the total garbage collected so far, 2,000 kg has been sent to Okhaldhunga while 1,000 kg has been brought to Kathmandu using Nepali Army helicopters for disposal. Some locally manageable waste was disposed off in the Namche region itself. Biodegradable waste was taken to Okhaldhunga while non-degradable waste like plastic and bottles were brought to Kathmandu. “Our team has now reached the Everest Base Camp for the cleaning campaign. All the necessary things including food, water and shelter have already been arranged there,” Ghimire said.
