About 208 tons of waste were collected in 11 days by volunteers of the Clean Arctic federal project, as well as volunteers from the World Tree Camp, organized with the support of the general partner of the project, Norilsk Nickel. Large-scale cleaning took place at five locations in Nikel. Volunteers also landscaped the future playground and built a bridge across the stream. In order to equip the future playground, it was necessary to dismantle the old garages and abandoned buildings and bring in 300 tons of soil. Three tons of waste were collected at Rodnik, and five tons were collected near the Kolosjoki River in the Sobachka Hill area, and a bridge was built across the stream, the main bridge was painted and information stands were installed. The work was carried out on the territory of the Kola superdeep well, as well as on the Sopka 555 tourist route, about 20 hectares of land were prepared for further improvement.

According to Andrey Nagibin, a member of the federal headquarters of the Clean Arctic project, the results of the interaction between business, government and volunteering are already visible in the Murmansk region.

“We are confident that the contribution of the World Tree Camp of Norilsk Nickel and the volunteers of the Clean Arctic project will not go unnoticed by the residents,” he said.
