Again, on solid waste management
MetadataShow full item record
Following the habagat for Southwest monsoon rains that flooded many parts of Metro Manila this week, a team from the group Basura Patrol went to the Manila Bay area and found plastic bags, straws, and other disposables, packaging materials like polystyrene, slippers, wood scraps and water hyacinth washed along the Manila Bay breakwater creating a dumpsite right next to the US Embassy on Roxas Boulevard. The same dumpsite is in most every shore near residents. Again, enormous garbage can be seen accumulated at the breakwaters.
