Clean up teams pull 1.5 tonnes of garbage from lake


Over the weekend an army of volunteers dragged out almost 1.5 tonnes of rubbish out of Lake Geneva.

It’s the 30th year in a row the clean-up operation has taken place - organised by local diving clubs.

As well as thousands of bottles, cigarette butts, plastic bags – the teams also pulled out bikes, scooters, shopping carts, credit cards, jewellery and binoculars.

The diving clubs are already asking for people to sign-up for next years clean up.
