Let’s Do It, Romania! (Romania)

“Let’s Do It, Romania!” is part of “Let’s Do It, World!”, a movement that started in Estonia in 2008 and which brings together volunteers to clean illegal dumping sites. The national objectives in Romania are to: Identify areas with large amounts of garbage, Clean these areas in one day, Monitor these areas together with volunteers, and Involve the volunteers in the National Register of Waste project.

In 2009, around 6500 waste piles were identified a week before the cleanup and located on a map. The land cover percentage exceeded 60%. This waste was collected by volunteers across the country, during Let’s Do It! Romania.
