In celebration of the International Coastal Cleanup Day 2022, Navotas held simultaneous clean-up drives in Barangays Bagumbayan North, Tangos North and Tangos South, and Tanza Marine Tree Park.

More than 150 individuals participated in the event, including employees from the city government and national government agencies, barangay officials and staff, students, teachers, and employees from private institutions.

Mayor John Rey Tiangco encouraged the participants to make coastal cleanup a habit.


“Navotas is surrounded by bodies of water and many Navoteños live on fishing and other fishing-related activities. It is then our duty to keep our coastal areas clean to maintain the ecosystem in these waters and sustain a healthy aquatic environment,” he said.

“Keeping our environment clean should not only be done as part of events such as the International Coastal Cleanup Day, but should be part of our lifestyle,” he added.

Among the trash and debris collected by the participants are plastic caps, bottles, and sachets, styrofoam materials, driftwood, and an assortment of metal items.

Volunteers are required to submit a copy of the volunteer ocean trash data form to record debris and trash items they have gathered during the event.
