Eco Troop Removed over 720 Ton Garbage from Wrangel Island in Arctic

Military personnel of the East military district carried out ecological rehabilitation of the Wrangel Island.

      The ecological troop collected more than 720 tons of garbage in the course of environmental rehabilitation of the Wrangel Island in the Arctic Ocean in 2015. Altogether more than two hectares of island area were cleared.

      The garbage is mostly scrap metal and metal barrel containers for fuels and lubricants that got accumulated on the island over decades. 208 tons of scrap metal were removed from the island to the continent.

      The work carried out by the ecological troop from the summer of 2014 has been suspended due to a great drop in temperature. The cleaning of the Wrangel Island will be resumed after the end of polar winter; more than 1 thousand tons of garbage are planned to be cleared in 2016.
