Clean-up Day in Andermatt

19 June 2021

Where there are people, there is litter – including in the mountains. The wind is quick to disperse a paper tissue or plastic wrapping. Because we want to prevent this refuse from ending up in streams and rivers, we’re organising a clean-up day in Andermatt in collaboration with POW, the Summit Foundation and Andermatt-Urserntal Tourismus GmbH.

Programme

We’ll meet on Saturday, June 19 at 8:30 a.m. or at 10:15 a.m. in Piazza Gottardo in Andermatt Reuss. The second group will perform a shorter clean-up round. After a brief introduction, we’ll head to the countryside in guided groups. Back at the car park, we’ll weigh the collected refuse before it’s taken away for recycling.

We’ll conclude the clean-up campaign with snacks and refreshing Möhl beverages, accompanied by music.

Schedule

  • 8:30 a.m. Meet-up in Piazza Gottardo in Andermatt Reuss, welcoming remarks, coffee and croissants, split-up into groups

  • 10:15 a.m. Meet-up Group 2 in Piazza Gottardo in Andermatt Reuss, welcoming remarks, coffee and croissants, split-up into groups

  • about 1:00 p.m. Meet-up in Piazza Gottardo, weighing of the collected refuse

  • 1:15 p.m. Relaxed get-together with food, beverages and music

Bring with you

  • Footwear suitable for the mountains (hiking boots, trekking shoes)

  • Depending on the weather: sun, wind, rain protection

  • A small snack for the break along the way and something to drink

You’ll be given materials for the clean-up campaign, like gloves and refuse sacks. Food and beverages for the get-together after the clean-up will be provided by Andermatt Swiss Alps.
