The City of Manila is planning to hire solo parents at Baseco compound in Port Area to help in regularly cleaning up the beach by picking up trash washed ashore.

Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna revealed Saturday her administration’s plan during the 37th International Coastal Clean-up Drive at Baseco beach which she led with other officials of the local government unit.

The solo parents shall be paid based on the volume of garbage retrieved from the beach and turned over to authorities for weighing and processing per sack.

“This is a good idea to help Baseco solo parents earn money while we clean up Baseco beach. We will prepare the plan as soon as possible on how we will buy the collected garbage from them,” Lacuna said.

The program will be spearheaded by the Department of Public Services of the city government, the mayor said.
