About International Clean Up Day

International Cleanup Day is one of the world's greatest environmental activities, which is undertaken by communities all around the world.

The project began as a local initiative in Australia twenty years ago, and has since become a world-wide operation. In Israel, KKL-JNF has been spearheading the cleanup day activities for 17 years.

Major ceremonies and cleanup activities take place in the north, center and south of the country, and involve about 250,000 Israelis, young and old, religious and secular, Jews and Arabs.

Many governmental groups and institutions cooperate with KKL-JNF on cleanup activities, including the Union of Local Authorities in Israel and the Center for Regional Councils (including councils and 250 municipalities).
