Those interested in participating in this major clean-up should arrive at the base station in Le Tour at 8 am. The defined cleaning area is located near the G2 Charamillon, restaurants and under the TDS Les Autannes line.

Once the waste is collected, it is classified by type, weighed, recycled if possible, etc. The objective is to understand what are the main types of discarded packaging and other items that are found in the mountains in order to identify actions to reduce them.
