Let's clean up Jyväskylä day in May resulted in more than 12 tonnes of litter being removed from parks and pedestrian routes

The entire city's joint cleaning effort in early May resulted in more than 12 tonnes of litter being removed from Jyväskylä's parks and pedestrian routes.

Some 14,000 volunteers took part in the event: schoolchildren, teachers, residents' associations, housing companies, sports teams and individual residents.

A total of 44 schools and approximately 60 other volunteer groups participated in the event.

Jyväskylä's traditional clean-up campaign was held on 5 May. Spring clean-up campaigns have proved to be a good way to lift up the spirit of working together in everyone's own neighbourhood. Many citizens participate in the clean-up campaign, they include schoolchildren and their parents, residents' associations and other participating groups as well as individual citizens.
