Cleanup no match to 'traveling' trash on Legazpi beach, rivers
MetadataShow full item record
Below the “Legazpi” signage on the boulevard that offers a breathtaking view of Mayon volcano is a shoreline that remains dirty despite repeated community cleanup drives. Residents believe that garbage strewn on the beach “traveled” from the adjacent town of Daraga through the Macabalo and Sagumayon rivers. Resident Sipolito Biobo said stench from decaying animals on the beach was carried by “amihan” (cool northeast wind) to houses at Barangay Puro from September to December.
