South Korean Mayor Dumps Tonne of Trash on Pristine Beach for International Clean-Up Day

A South Korean mayor has come under fire for dumping a tonne of trash on a pristine beach just so volunteers would have something to clean.


On September 21, volunteers across the globe, from Thailand to Hawaii, gathered on their local beaches to clean up trash and make a powerful statement about the poor state of our environment? But what about volunteers with no dirty beaches to clean? Well, some of them got a bit of help from local authorities.

Late last month, a South Korean mayor came under fire after revealing that he dumped a tonne of trash on a pristine beach just so hundreds of volunteers could clean it up the next day, in celebration of the International Coastal Cleanup Day. His office later apologized, saying that there wasn’t any trash for people to pick up, and that they only did it to “raise awareness about the seriousness of coastal waste”.

“We brought in waste styrofoam and other coastal trash gathered from nearby areas so the 600 participants could carry out clean-up activities,” Lee Dong-jin, mayor of Jindo county, said in a statement. He claimed that 100 percent of the trash had been cleaned up by the volunteers and that none of it ended up in the ocean, so it didn’t cause any secondary pollution.

Dong-jin said that the trash had been brought in by truck and dumped over the pristine sand of southwest Jindo. Can you imagine the world we’re living in right now, where someone dumps trash on a clean beach just so eco-conscious volunteers would have something to pick up? If that’s not mind-blowing, I don’t know what is…
