PSNews-Local function forces have cleaned up the sea and beaches, collecting and moving away some 9 tonnes of wastes and clotted oil pushed ashore by waves to the coastline of Nui Thanh district, Quang Nam province, said Tran Van Anh, Director of the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment.
Quang Nam’s Urban Environment Company deployed about 15 or 25 environment workers to clean and collect garbage in local beaches per day, starting from February 14. To date, they have collected some 9 tonnes of waste and clotted oil.
As the collected wastes were classified as a hazardous kind of wastes, they were transported by function container vehicles to to the Hazardous Waste Disposal Facility in Tam Xuan 2 commune, Nui Thanh district.
The main cause for the phenomenon has yet to be found, according to Anh.
Therefore, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Quang Nam suggested that the Provincial People’s Committee report the case to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment so that the ministry will send scientists and experts to the locality to find out the origin of the environmental pollution in order to exert proper management and avoid severe consequences to coastal areas of Quang Nam in the coming time.
