The collected waste was separated and sent for recycling.
The work consisted of cleaning the roadsides, viewpoints, ditches, fountains, and other points of interest.
The councilor for the Environment of the Municipality of Baião, Henrique Gaspar, said that “Since Baião is the municipality with the highest percentage of green areas in the district of Porto, the municipality wanted, with this action, to set an example on the need to deposit waste in proper places to protect the environment”. “If each citizen does his or her part, we can have a cleaner and safer territory for everyone,” he noted, recalling the importance of disposing of COVID-19 masks and other protective materials in appropriate places.
