RANGOON — More than 200 young volunteers hit the streets of Rangoon on Sunday to collect garbage around the former capital of Burma, as part of several activities to mark World Environment Day, which was held on June 4.

The campaign was joined by young people from more than 20 environmental groups and civil society networks, who collected rubbish scattered along the streets of downtown Rangoon and delivered pamphlets to raise environmental awareness.

Meanwhile, in the northern part of the city, members of Rangoon’s Free Funeral Service Society also celebrated Environment Day by collecting garbage in North Dagon Township and placing garbage bins for local residents to use for disposal of household garbage.
