DENR ‘cleans up reefs’ on reef-less Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
About 200 participants from the DENR, the Department of Public Works and Highways, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority, and the Manila city government picked up sacksful of trash from the 500-meter stretch of the bay in Malate. Private sector employees also joined the cleanup drive, gathering trash that had washed ashore just beside the US Embassy complex. The cleanup drive was also in compliance with a 2011 Supreme Court ruling that directed 13 government agencies to initiate a continuous program to rehabilitate Manila Bay.
