Volunteer divers remove 1.6 tons of discarded tires, other waste, from Red Sea

17 14 8

Volunteer divers in the Red Sea Port of Eilat spent the weekend lugging 1.6 tons of discarded tires and other waste from the seabed to the shore as part of an annual cleanup operation.

The divers, active in a not-for-profit marine protection organization called the Coast Patrol, worked with members of the city’s Palamida diving club and in cooperation with the Eilat Municipality and the navy.

The waste they retrieved ranged from tractor and truck tires and sheets of iron to old heating appliances, trash cans, and fishing weights.
