According to the Iloilo City General Services Office (GSO), an average four tons of garbage are collected every day. Aside from routine garbage collection, scattered plastic waste, cut branches and twigs, weeds, debris, and household waste are also gathered for disposal.
In addition, street cleaning operations this week took place outside Tabucan Elementary School, along Diversion Road in the Mandurriao district, Fort San Pedro, and Molo Plaza.
Last May, the GSO conducted a clean-up drive along Calahunan Creek in the city’s Mandurriao district, where approximately two tons of garbage was collected.
“[The] Water Quality Management Area monitors the water quality of different bodies of water in the city,” explained then-Assistant GSO department head Neil Ravena. “They identified Calahunan Creek, [where] we gathered 1,830 kilograms of waste, which [impeded] the flow and [polluted] the water.”
Meanwhile, earlier this year, a “One Time, Big Time” coastal clean-up took place in Iloilo City’s Molo and Arevalo districts, where 18 tons of garbage was collected./WDJ
