The Iloilo City government’s “One Time Big Time” coastal cleanup on March 30, 2019 is only the beginning of a longer journey towards the restoration of the coastal waters in Iloilo City, according to Mayor Jose Espinosa III. Inspired by the national government’s initiative in Boracay Island in Aklan and Manila Bay rehabilitation program, the city government and the City Environmental and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) initiated the cleanup of 26 coastal barangays stretching from Bitoon, Jaro to Santo Niño Sur, Arevalo. Volunteers from non-government organizations, national agencies, public and private schools, City Hall employees, residents, and barangays officials joined in the cause of making the coastal water fit for swimming again.
