DENR 8 Supports International Coastal Cleanup Day.

Over 200 volunteers joined the 2015 International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) on September 19, 2015 held along the coastal areas in Tacloban City.


Cleanup volunteers trooped to the beaches, coasts, rivers, and waterways to participate in this symbolic event in coordination with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Volunteers from all walks of life - students, government workers, private sector, LGU officials and other volunteer organizations - rolled up their sleeves in collecting wastes along these coastal areas.

A total of 109 trash bags were filled with trash weighing 1,798 kilos that were collected from four cleanup sites stretching to 2.2 kilometers from Magsaysay Boulevard, Port area to Market area, Brgy. Diit and along Magallanes Street, Tacloban City. The most common trash collected were cigarette butts, food wrappers, plastic bags, plastic/foam containers, bottle caps, plastic lids, and straws. These trash, considered as household wastes, mostly came from residents along or within coastal areas, rivers and waterways.
