Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Danilo Lim recognized the personnel of the agency who cleaned up the trash left by Traslacion participants.

Lim said some 1,000 MMDA personnel remained in ther respective assignments until the image of the Black Nazarene arrived at the Quiapo Church while others collected every trash left by devotees.

At the start of the Traslacion, MMDA traffic personnel served as guides from the Quirino Grandstand and along the procession route to ensure the safety of the devotees.

At 4:12 am, the Traslacion officially started with thousands of devotees, many clad in maroon and yellow shirts and barefooted, taking part.

Members of the Metropolitan Public Safety Office, headed by Michael Salalima, rendered medical assistance to 173 persons who suffered minor injuries and complained of dizziness and difficulty of breathing.

Clearing operations began as the procession moved along the route of Traslacion.

As of 2 p.m., MMDA street sweepers who followed the procession collected 12 truckloads of garbage along the procession route.

“Our personnel positioned themselves at the tail of the procession to efficiently gather trash immediately. A dump truck of the Manila City government was dispatched,” said Lim.

Trash collected composed mainly of plastic food wrappers, empty water bottles, Styrofoam, and other food packaging were hauled to Pier 18 in the city of Manila.
