MANILA, Philippines – Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu expressed dismay over what he calls a ‘garbage crisis’ in Metro Manila.
He said the Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ (DENR) efforts to clean up Manila Bay, in particular, are becoming useless because of the recurring problems of improper garbage disposals in nearby areas.
“We have started the clean up only this year, in January. After we cleaned up, we left behind a clean shoreline, one day or two days, andyan na naman (there are garbage again),” he told reporters in a chance interview Thursday (December 5).
