DENR trash traps to reduce solid waste in Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is utilizing floating trash traps made of recycled materials to prevent solid wastes from reaching into the waters of Manila Bay. About 50 trash traps made of used plastic bottles and fishing gears were installed in Lamao, Orani, Orion, Pinulot, Pangulisanin, Amo, Aguawan, Almacen, Bilolo, Talisay, Mabuco and Samal rivers in Bataan, and Guagua-Pasak river in Pampanga. Each measure 30 to 100 meters. “Aside from the regular cleanup, which we are doing every week, these trash traps are another strategy to prevent the accumulation of garbage in the shoreline of our Manila Bay. Solid wastes are now being removed from the source before it reaches the bay,” DENR Regional Executive Director Paquito Moreno Jr. said.
