Lacuna orders strict garbage management

Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna on Sunday appealed to residents of the city to ensure cleanliness in their areas as she ordered strict implementation of the waste segregation system and garbage collection schedules.

She stressed that most residents in the city are putting out trash earlier than the scheduled garbage collection which result into eyesores.

The lady mayor also reminded residents that there is an existing city ordinance regarding the ‘Tapat ko, Linis ko’ program of the local government which requires every household to keep their vicinity clean.

Lacuna also explained that while Executive Order No. 6 designates every Friday as “cleanup day” inside and outside of City Hall, cleanliness must be maintained at all times as she underscored the importance of keeping the surroundings clean as this would invite tourists and investors which, in turn, would mean progress for the city.

According to the mayor, the local government is doing everything it can to keep Manila clean, but that to ensure its success, the cooperation of the residents is needed.
