While the City Government of Cagayan de Oro is on a month-long dry run of its No Segregation, No Collection policy at the City Proper area, many residents elsewhere continue to throw garbage in open areas such as creeks, canals and the like.
More than a week ago just before PAG-ASA announced the onset of the rainy season, the City’s Hapsay Team conducted their regular declogging of Bitan-ag Creek in Lapasan. Despite the information and education campaign (IEC) on solid waste management, many individuals still lack the discipline as shown in these photos. When will this change?
The said activity is in collaboration with the Department of Public Works & Highways (DPWH) District 2, City Local Environment & Natural Resources Office (Clenro), City Engineering Office (CEO), IPM and other stakeholders.
