Israel To Partake in 'International Cleanup Day'

Clean Up Day in Rahat, Israel 2012
Israel is gearing up for its annual “Cleanup the World Day,” set to take place on September 9th.

Led by Keren Kayamet LeYisrael and the Jewish National Fund, about 200,000 volunteers are expected to take part in Clean Up Day in Israel this year, with the cooperation of regional and local councils, government bodies, and schools.

Stretching from the Negev to the Galilee, Jews, Arabs, Christians, Bedouins, and Druze will all join in educational activities held throughout the country.

This unique day will provide activities for all sectors of Israeli society to interact with one another and the environment.  For the first time, absorption centers for newly arrived immigrants from Ethiopia will also take part in the day's activities, a program made possible thanks to the support of Jewish National Fund in the United States

Throughout the several locations of Cleanup Day, the volunteers will receive environmentally informative preparatory instruction, free transportation to and from cleanup sites, a special cap, T-shirt and gloves, and garbage bags in 3 colors for the different types of recyclable materials: organic, paper, and plastic.
