The annual Clean Games Baltic Cup will take place around Tallinn's Linnahall on Saturday (September 19) on World Cleanup Day. The aim is to pick up the most trash in one hour.
The event takes place around the Baltic Sea region with participants racing to collect the most litter and rubbish. In Estonia, the Clean Games Baltic Cup will take place in the area around Linnahall from 11 a.m. to noon.
Participants will use an app to find garbage which has been marked on a map by the organizers. They will then receive points which go on the app's scoreboard. Participants compete with each other within the city and the whole tournament.
The main focus in Tallinn will be cigarette butts and learning how to sort different types of waste.
BinFree have organized this year's event and the organization recommends registration take place the day before the event.
The Clean Games Baltic Cup has been played annually since 2014 and is an international environmental tournament that takes place in Belarus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Sweden, and Ukraine.
