On Saturday, 21 September 2020, World Cleanup Day took place. In Lenzburg, employees, customers and the two founders of NIKIN collected waste and properly disposed of it. They collected a total of 75.5 kilograms.
The motivated helpers collected waste for almost three hours.NIKIN's headquarters are in Lenzburg, so the company decided to give something back to this city and organise a cleanup.
Every helping hand counts
After a call on social media, some volunteers came forward to support the NIKIN team with the Cleanup. The cleanup team was 23 people strong – among them three children who actively helped. Divided into four groups they collected about three hours. Afterwards they carried the waste to the waste disposal centre, separated it and disposed of it professionally.
