On October 3rd, 2012, nine employees at the Kitakyushu R&D Center volunteered to participate in the Higashida Cleanup Project.
This is a volunteer cleanup project, sponsored by the Yahata Higashida Community Development Coordination Association (Yahata Higashida Machizukuri Renrakukai), and the cleanups are carried out semiannually in spring and fall. Advantest has been a constant participant in this project.
The participants cleaned up Higashida Main Street and the downtown area this time. This is a district with an increasing number of buildings and facilities constructed every year, and it is obvious that the volume of litter on the streets is also increasing.
The Kitakyushu R&D Center will continue to be part of the cleaning project in the future. As one of the community members, the Center will also work to promote the prevention of littering and dumping trash on the streets.
