Jeju City will intensify its coastal clean-up campaign this coming winter by investing 25 billion won in 22 waste-removal projects.
The city has also recruited 85 regional organizations to voluntarily help the regular coastal clean-up campaign including fishermen’s cooperatives.
To combat increased marine waste this winter, the city will also dispatch more personnel to each district while strengthening patrol activities.
As of early November, 23,191 people had taken part in collecting waste in coastal regions.
A total of 14,658 tons of marine waste have already been removed this year.
