COIMBATORE: Around 70 volunteers from the Environmentalist Foundation of  India and sanitary workers from City Corporation cleaned the bunds of Kumarasamy lake on Sunday and  removed non-biodegradable waste from the lake’s premises in the post-Pongal cleanup drive..

According  to a statement, the effort was aimed at cleaning the lake bund by removing non-degradable waste such as plastic, rubber, thermacol and other wastes.

“The volunteers collected over one tonne waste during the three-hour drive. The wastes mainly comprised flowers packed in polythene bags that pose a major threat to the lake and to the biodiversity, especially birds. Volunteers were given an orientation to understand better the need to clean the lake. The need to clean our lakes and maintain them for a water abundant future was stressed upon towards the end of the clean up,” the release added.
