The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) participated in the International Coastal Clean-up (ICC) Day at the Baseco Beach in Tondo, Manila on September 21.

MMDA Chairman Danilo Lim said more than 200 personnel from different offices of the agency joined the activity at 6 am spearheaded by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

International Coastal Cleanup is the largest volunteer effort for ocean's health.  People around the world gather on beaches, coasts, rivers, waterways and underwater dive sites to remove trash and record information on the debris collected. Results will aid in better waste management policies/plans, product packaging designs and in stirring environmental consciousness among the people.

“We are calling everyone to take part in the annual ICC activity that will bring together national agencies, local government units, environmentalists and volunteers to collect trash littering the coastline,” said Lim.

Volunteers are urged to bring cleaning materials, gloves and sacks in removing trash in the foreshore areas of Manila.  

“Aside from our regular clean-up drive for the rehabilitation of the Manila Bay, the MMDA continues to be a part of many other initiatives to advocate environmental protection,” added Lim.

Most of the collected garbage at the bay are bamboo poles and driftwood which had been carried by currents from nearby fish pens, water hyacinths, plastics, household waste, and other sorts of garbage.

MMDA Road Emergency Group members will be positioned in the area to administer medical assistance in case anyone gets injured.  Four rubber boats, portalets, vans and support vehicle will also be dispatched.

Presidential Proclamation No. 470 declares the third Sunday of September of each year as the International Coastal Clean-Up (ICC) Day in observance of the Global Coastal Clean-up celebrations.
