In recent days, environmental activists once again sailed for three days on the section of Lake Tisza between Tiszafüred and Tiszanána-Dinnyéshát. A total of 200 participants of the 12 enthusiastic pet boat teams collected 400-500 bags of waste every day from the floodplain forests, reeds and lakeside waste islands. The IV. The Tisza Lake PET Cup was won by an experienced team, DHL Clean Up Hungary, and the Tisza-Hőse honorary title was this time taken by the ZÁBRÁK. The waste collection event was supported by the Ministry of Energy (ME).

Since the first PET Cup held in 2013, this was the eighteenth waste collection competition organized by the originator Natureszétéfilm.hu Egyesület. After the traditional Upper Tisza competitions, five years ago the organizers first extended their environmental protection work to Lake Tisza, four years ago they started cleaning Bodrog, and this May they visited Maros for the first time.

In recent years, the area of Lake Tisza has become an important center for river cleaning and environmental protection programs. In addition to the summer competitions, longer and shorter waste collection actions are organized throughout the year, so this year the organizers were optimistic, hoping for less waste. However, the war situation is not conducive to solving the incomplete waste infrastructure across the border, most of the waste coming from Ukraine was also brought by the flooding Tisza this year, so unfortunately few previously cleaned areas on the lake remained clean. The IV. The participants of the Lake Tisza PET Cup cleaned the lake with a tremendous effort, despite the heat and mosquitoes, and it paid off, since according to the organizers’ estimates, the almost 1,500 bags of waste collected meant the removal of at least 6.5 tons of dirt this time.
