Yangmingshan Flower Festival Concludes with Mountain Cleanup Activity

The one-month-long 2015 Yangmingshan Flower Festival came to a close with a mountain cleanup event on Sunday, March 15.
Faculty members, parents, and students from Huaxing Elementary School, Huaxing High School, Taipei Wego Private Bilingual Senior High School, Taipei European School, Taipei Adventist American School, and Chinese Culture University joined hands in clearing out a total of 40 100-kg bags of litter. The majority of the trash consisted of PET bottles and cigarette butts.
According to the Parks and Street Lights Office (PSLO), keeping Yangmingshan clean is an important task for the agency. During the flower festival period, there are over 20 sanitation workers patrolling the premise daily to ensure the environment is kept tidy, as well as temporary installing 50-gallon trash cans at 20 locations.
In addition, PSLO announced that the dates of the art exhibition spotlighting artworks by artists Goto Sumio, Wu A-sun, and Paloma Chang will be extended to March 20.
Despite the poor weather, the visitor count at this year’s Yangmingshan Flower Festival set a new record of 1.5 million – the visitor count at the event’s official website also exceeded 240,000.
