Saturday September 5, 2020

To close the summer season, why not come and join us for our traditional litter pick on the 5th September 2020? The objective is not just to clean up our resort but also to make every generation think about how they can be more responsible in this area.

New: A collaboration with one of les Arcs partners, Picture, who are launching an itinerant ‘Stop Waste Tour’ event all over France. Teams will be formed on the day depending on the number of participants.

Participants from Bourg Saint Maurice can take the funicular which will be open for the occasion.

All participants will take home an environmentally friendly gift donated by Picture and les Arcs.

THE PROGRAMME FOR THE 5th SEPTEMBER 2020

8h30 –Welcome drink for volunteers/ Place du Soleil Arc 1600

Before starting the big clean up, we’ll start the day with a coffee or a hot chocolate for the kids! We’ll hand out the kit, put everyone into groups and set up the recycling teams.

9h00 –Set off for the litter pick.

Head out on several different routes to collect litter.

The litter is brought back to the collection point throughout the morning to be weighed and sorted.

From 11h to 15h – Eco-village

There will be an ‘éco-village’ in the Place du Soleil in Arc 1600 to continue the day’s activities.

From 12h00 – Free lunch hosted by the resort.

After the morning of litter picking and sorting, enjoy lunch with the other volunteers and organisers.

This is put on in partnership with the les Arcs and Bourg St Maurice Tourist Office, ADS (the company that runs the ski lifts), Picture, Jean Lain and Mountain Riders.
