At the opening of the Pick It Up! – Volunteering for the Clean Hungary three-day waste collection action, Nagy István, minister of State of the Ministry of Agriculture greeted 250 schoolchildren and their accompanying teachers and adults on Friday in Tiszaszőlős.

He announced that within the current action, more than 200,000 participants are cleaning up the garbage at 1732 registered locations.
