Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar has declared Zapote-Alabang road and other major roads in the City as zero-garbage zones with the strict implementation of anti-littering ordinance imposing stiffer penalties on violators. City residents and business owners were advised to dispose of their garbage only during the scheduled time – 3a.m. and 8a.m. daily. Bantay Tapon Basura volunteers were deputized to apprehend those illegally disposing of garbage to be meted a penalty of P500 with imprisonment of from 10 days up to 30 days, or both fine and imprisonment. “Waste segregation at source is an important long-term solution to our garbage problem. It’s our collective responsibility in making our city clean and achieve our target of zero-garbage,” Aguilar said. More than 1,000 volunteers – Kaagapay sa Kalinisan at Kagandahan ng Las Piñas – in the city’s 20 barangay (villages) have been deployed to maintain cleanliness and help in information dissemination for the clean-and-green drive awareness.
