MetadataShow full item record
Efforts by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) are underway for resumption of a cleanup drive and restoration of Central Luzon portion of the Manila Bay. Manila Bay regional focal person Cynde Pagador said over 10,000 kilograms of mixed wastes have been collected by DENR river patrolers in various water bodies since March as the entire region was placed under community quarantine. The wastes collected were brought to the Metro-Clark Sanitary Landfill in Capas, Tarlac, for proper disposal. Nearly 300 estero (creeks) rangers or river patrolers have been critical in the department’s efforts to clean up Manila Bay and the rivers draining from it during the quarantine period.
