Navotas gathers 88 sacks of trash from canals

Canal cleaners collected 88 sacks of garbage which clogged some canals along Halaan Street in Barangay North Bay Boulevard South, Navotas City and caused flood in the area.

Navotas City Mayor Tobias “Toby” Tiangco earlier deployed canal cleaners to Kanduli Street and Babanse Street after receiving reports of flooding in the area.

Tiangco said the canal cleaners found piles of garbage clogging the canals, which prevented the 54 bombastic pumping stations in the city to siphon the flood.

He then reminded Navotas City residents again to apply better waste disposal practices to minimize flooding in the city.

“Paalala po muli na nakasalalay sa atin ang kalutasan sa problema sa basura na sanhi ng pagbaha (This is to remind you again that it is up to us to solve the problem of garbage which causes flooding in the city),” Tiangco said in a Facebook post Saturday.

“Kahit magdagdag pa tayo nang magdagdag ng Bombastik Pumping Station, kung barado naman ang kanal ay magbabaha pa rin (Even if we keep on adding Bombastic Pumping Stations, if the canals are clogged, there would still be flood),” he lamented.

“Ang Navotas po ang ating tahanan. Magtulungan po tayo para mapanatili itong malinis, maaliwalas at maayos,” the city mayor added.
Those who are caught littering in Navotas City must pay a fine of P500. Violators who cannot or refuse to pay the fine may face charges in court, Tiangco said.
