Twenty-five volunteers took part in a cleaning day at the viewpoint of sa Creueta de Formentor at the end of June. Marking the tenth anniversary of the declaration of the Serra de Tramuntana as a ‘Paratge Natural’, 18 climbers from different organisations and the Council of Pollensa participated.
The volunteers, some from the Association for Active and Adventure Tourism Companies, others from the Association for Mountain Guides, in collected waste from the foot of the viewpoint. In all, 4m3 of rubbish were picked up, the waste included bins, containers, bottles, cans, caps, fire extinguishers and posters, among other items.

The day was a success meaning more plans to clean hard to reach areas are likely.
