In a bid to address the perennial problem of garbage flowing down to Manila Bay from creeks and esteros in barangays at the border between Parañaque and Pasay, local government officials have resolved to take concrete steps toward improved collaboration in cleanup of waterways and in educating the public on proper waste disposal.

Heads of concerned barangays of the two cities bordering Cutcut Creek, Baliwag Creek, and Tripa de Galina met in Barangay Vitalez, Parañaque City, on July 3 to forge a consultative agreement or collaborative undertaking to jointly tackle, among others, the continuing waste problem.

Facilitated by the Department of the Interior and Local Government cluster head Irene G. Arrogante and graced by barangay captains, community environment and natural resources office heads, and DILG field officers of the two cities, the meeting aimed to resolve the garbage problems of adjacent barangays, such as poor collaboration among barangays and communities during cleanups, and the constant presence of trash flowing down the waterways from one barangay to another, and improper garbage disposal.

General agreements reached during the meeting included the installation of trash traps along the waterways, proper garbage disposal in respective areas of responsibility, and the conduct of joint cleanups of waterways in both cities, according to the CENRO of Parañaque City.

The meeting and the steps the stakeholders would take were in line with the Manila Bay Rehabilitation Program’s “Battle for River and Esteros.”
