The cleanup operation extended to prominent areas such as “Yuzhen,” “Bugarievo,” “Acad. Petar Dinekov,” “Peter Stoev,” and “Peter Vaskov,” leaving no corner of the city untouched.

The director of Chistota, Desislava Georgieva, emphasized the thoroughness of the planning process, stating, “Our organizers pre-checked all the neighbourhoods in the city to determine where there is a need for urgent cleaning.”

The meticulous approach ensured that the cleanup efforts were targeted and impactful.

Deputy Mayor of the municipality for ecology, Ivan Stoyanov, and regional mayor Atanas Kunchev were on-site, overseeing the cleanup activities.

Stoyanov expressed the city’s commitment to swift action: “We committed to clean up the city as quickly as possible, and we are already doing it. Our efforts of the last few days yield results, and the citizens can see it.”

He further highlighted that the cleanup operation involved collaborative efforts from the Plovdiv Municipal Inspectorate, Municipal Police, and Municipal Security to ensure strict adherence to environmental regulations.

The focus on eliminating unregulated waste disposal was evident as two large dumpsites in the “Eastern” district, located at 6 “Elba” St. and 12 “Kraina” St., were successfully liquidated.

Internal spaces in neighbourhoods such as “Trakia,” “Severen,” and “Zapaden” received meticulous attention, contributing to the overall cleanliness of the city.

Desislava Georgieva, the director of Chistota, pointed out the positive impact that a more practical application of preventive measures against unregulated waste disposal would have on the city’s cleanliness.

The coordinated efforts addressed the immediate cleanup needs and laid the groundwork for ongoing pollution control.

Deputy Mayor Ivan Stoyanov assured citizens that pollution control would be continuous and stringent. He emphasized, “Violators will be fined.

Those have already been sanctioned, and this will continue.” The commitment to enforcing penalties for violations underscores the city’s determination to maintain the cleanliness standards that were achieved.

As Plovdiv’s large-scale cleaning campaign progresses, it sets a precedent for other municipalities to prioritize environmental sustainability.

The Chistota team’s concerted efforts, coupled with local authorities’ support, demonstrate the power of community engagement in creating a cleaner, healthier future for Plovdiv.

The city’s commitment to ongoing pollution control reflects a collective responsibility towards preserving the environment for generations to come.
