Over a month-long Everest clean-up campaign launched by Everest Summiteers’ Association in April this year brought down 8,110 kg rubbish collected up to an altitude of 8,700 feet from the base camp. The drive had taken a team of 29 local Sherpas to clear Everest of litters collected over the years. 3210kg of wastes will be disposed off at Namche and the remaining litters will be brought to Kathmandu for recycling and reuse purposes. The waste included oxygen cylinders, pipes, ropes, plastics and can bottles.
