Each year, tons of wood and plastic rubbhîsh are collected by a large number of volunteers during the traditional cleanup of the lake reed beds at Grangettes (Noville, Vaud). As 2020 is an alternate year, the level of the lake will be lower and we will be able to collect more wood, so we hope for a large number of volunteers!
During the cleanup, a helicopter will be used to carry away nets with about 800 kilos of wood to limit the erosion of the shoreline. Some of the wood will be recycled for heating or for decoration and will be available for collection by the public until April 8th. The remains will be generously disposed of by the SATOM company in the regional incinterating centre, where it will be used for heating and electricity.
This year, the ASL will participate in the clean of the Grangettes as part of its campaign to Stop knotweed. The cleanup of March 7th will mark the beginning of the ASL’s year-round commitment to eradicating a colony of knotweed in the centre of the reserve.
