Over 200 Tons of Garbage Removed by Volunteers in the North of Taimyr

More than 200 tons of construction debris and scrap metal, accumulated in the last century, were removed in Dikson, the northernmost port of Russia.

      Founded more than 100 years ago, Dikson is unique in many respects: it is the northernmost seaport of Russia and the world’s northernmost mainland settlement.

      The main transport here is aviation, but sometimes it takes weeks for appropriate weather to settle.

      During the years of Soviet power, a huge amount of technical debris and scrap got accumulated here.

      "80 cubic meters of timber were collected on the embankment of the settlement and transferred to the local population for personal use. 236 cubic meters of construction waste were disposed of, 5 tons of scrap metal were scrapped, and 820 running meters of pipes were cut. Three wooden two-storied buildings in emergency condition were brought down with special machinery,"- the administration of the Taimyr Municipal District reported.
