Tree branches, plastic bags and bottles, were found on Bai Truoc and Bai Sau beaches spoiling landscapes and polluting the environment, the online newspaper vietnamplus.vn reported. Many tourists are staying away from the area.
According to Vung Tau Environment Services and Urban Project Joint Stock Company, the waste follows water flow of Sai Gon River and southwestern localities and pours into the ocean. The wind has brought it offshore.

Nearly 200 workers have been mobilised to clean the beaches. But due to large amount of waste covering a long area, it will take several days to collect all of it, around 100 tonnes in total.
