Beautification: 183 Tons of Trash Collected at Chuong Duong

The Chuong Duong neighborhood makeover project is one of the key projects in Keep Hanoi Clean’s Beautification Program. We are glad to collaborate on this project with ECUEThinkPlaygroundsCECR, the Hoan Kiem district government, and local Chuong Duong ward. The project encompasses 4 main activities which together will help to convert a popular dumping spot into a public space:


  • Waste management and waste capacity building
  • Creating a new community garden and preserving the existing natural habitat
  • Implementing new wastewater treatment for the local community
  • Building a new playground for local children


At the end of 2021, a huge team of volunteers helped to clean-up and sanitise the site so that construction of the community garden and playground could begin. Now we are pleased to share the incredible results of our volunteers’ collective efforts:

  • 73 Volunteers came to help with the clean-up
  • The youngest volunteer was 16, while the oldest was 75!
  • Together our volunteers cleared 11.5 tons of trash by hand
  • A further 171.5 tons of trash was removed by an excavator


In total, an incredible 183 tons of trash was removed from the site! A huge thank-you to everyone who came out to help us.
