Cleanup sectors


The area of action extends from O Freixo  to Esteiro. It is divided into 11 zones (A, B, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K and Classification) (See map of cleaning zones). The waste classification area was set up next to the fish market building in O Freixo.

Each zone has a group of participants associated with the corresponding coordinators.

Get ready at 08:30 a.m. at the meeting point. From here groups A, B and D will walk to the different cleaning areas. The rest of the goups will go by car. Since the parking area is limited, sharing cars is strongly recommended. At the end of the cleanup, we will return to the classification area to help and to sign the attendance report as it will be needed to justify our participation in the cleanup.

Things to take into account

  • Attention to unknown liquids. Do not pour!
  • Bulky, transport without putting them in bags.
  • We also collect small pieces of plastic (there are many), as they are the first ones to enter the food chain and can end up affecting the seafood.
  • NEVER PUT IN A BAG MIXED WITH OTHER GARBAGE the syringes we may find. We’ll take them to the group coordinator
