Cleaning Operations Underway on Alanya Beaches

103

Due to continuous rainfall and excessive sea surges in Alanya during the winter season, a common occurrence has been the frequent washing ashore of waste. In response to this issue, the Alanya Municipality and the Alanya Touristic Hoteliers Association (ALTID) have deployed cleaning teams to collect and remove the debris from the coastline.

The waste transported to the sea by rivers, combined with underwater pollution, results in the accumulation of debris on the shore, negatively impacting the appearance of the beaches. The waste, primarily consisting of items such as plastic bags, bottles, and cans, is gathered, packaged, and removed from the coastline through the collaborative efforts of ALTİD’s beach cleaning team, as well as the Alanya Municipality’s Departments of Cleaning Services, Public Works, and Environmental Protection and Control. Various types of waste, including nylon, plastic bags, PET bottles, and tin cans, are carefully collected, separated, and disposed of, demonstrating a commitment to maintaining the cleanliness of the shoreline.
