The annual pilgrimage season to Adam’s Peak will come to an end today.
The Central Environment Authority says that plans have been made to implement a programme to remove garbage that have been left behind by pilgrims.
Chairman of Central Environment Authority Professor Lal Dharmasiri speaking on the issue said:
During the season pilgrims have left behind garbage knowingly or unknowingly, during their journey. At present there is a large stock of garbage on either side of the steps to adam’s peak. The Central Environment Authority is planning on getting involved in cleaning this.
Also authority implemented a similar campaign a month ago and during this campaign we collected over 800 kilogrammes of plastic bottles. Many volunteer organisations have come forward to help us. An old boys’ association of a school in Kegalle has volunteered to help us and accordingly they will be coming here on Saturday.
In conclusion, he said that the authority hopes to clear whole area soon.
