PIA Press Release

Thousands of multi-sector volunteers join Tacloban coastal cleanup on September 15

Tacloban City (September 4) -- A multi-sector group composed of the Region Eight Administrators League, the City Government of Tacloban and the non-government organization called the Nature Unlimited Leyte Outdoor Club, will conduct a coastal clean up drive at Barangays 88, 89 and 90 at San Jose District, Tacloban City on September 15, 2007.

Land Transportation Office Region 8 Director Raul Aguilos informed that the Coastal Clean Up will coincide with the World Clean Up Day. This, he said will start at 6:00 o'clock in the morning with a short program at the Sahara Beach.

From there, the volunteers will be divided into three groups with the REAL cluster 4 to be assigned at Barangay 90; Clusters 2 and 3 at the beach areas in Barangay 89 and Cluster 1 is assigned at Barangay 88.

Director Aguilos said that this is a long stretch and many volunteers are needed to help in the clean up drive.

Aside from the members of the organizing groups, the students at the Holy Virgin of Salvation, San Jose National High School, the NSTP students from the various universities and colleges in Tacloban City, will be requested to help in the coastal clean up which is known as the Beachurero for many years already.

Director Aguilos said that this activity hopes to rekindle the social responsibility of the government personnel, the city government personnel, the other sectors of society and the constituents in the barangays themselves because they are the first to be affected if the beaches will not be kept clean.

The Drive also advocates the spirit of volunteerism among the government and private sectors and the socio civic and non-government organizations, Director Aguilos said.

Before the start of the Coastal Clean Up, a short program and briefing will be conducted to promote environmental awareness, to instruct the participants on how to segregate the trashes along the beach as to the bio-degradable and non-bio degradable.

Collection sites and drinking water stations will be made available, Director Aguilos said. (PIA 8) [top]
