A 23-strong team of certified divers and 15 onshore volunteers recovered over 1,200kg of recyclable waste from the seabed off Wied iż-Żurrieq during the annual clean-up organised by Green Pak and the Amphibians Scuba Diving Club.

Among the hundreds of objects gathered were soft-drink cans, glass bottles, plastic wrappings, fishing nets, ladders, carpets, traffic signposts, mobile phones, car accessories and tyres.

Onshore volunteers also gathered rubbish and debris from the surrounding location in an effort to recover litter before they are carried down into the sea by storms during the winter.
