They collected and removed almost 11 million bags of garbage from the shores of water bodies – this is about 91 thousand KamAZ trucks. In 2023, 1,576,711 volunteers took part in the coastal cleanup. They carried out about 28 thousand activities, cleaned 38,459 kilometers of coastlines and removed 1,847,737 bags filled with 146,645 cubic meters of garbage," the message says.

According to the results of this year's campaign, Tatarstan took the first place, which has become the leader for the third time in a row.
