    1

    THE Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) on Friday announced the collection 1,124 truckloads of garbage from 15 waterways in line with the “Estero Blitz” declogging campaign. Engr. Emma Quiambao, MMDA Flood Control and Sewerage Management Office director, said most of the waste materials collected were made of plastic, silt and styrofoam. Now on its fourth year, Estero Blitz aims to maximize the conveyance capacity of open waterways so these can accommodate larger volume of floodwaters during the rainy season to minimize floodings.

    1. It’s a deep-rooted problem. Discipline should come from within. We need that commitment to ourselves not to pollute our environment. The biggest role in garbage collection and disposal must be from the local administration. There is just no sensible garbage collection and protocol in many cities and towns. Streets are so narrow and congested for garbage trucks (if they have) to operate properly. Politics and dirty corruption still prevail. Neighborhood whose barangay captain is not political ally of the mayor will have the poorest or non-existent sanitation services.
