More than 200 volunteers joined DENR in the cleanup of a portion of Redemptorist Water Channel in Parañaque City on February 10.
Employees of the DENR Metropolitan Environmental Office (MEO)–South, together with the Coastal and Estero Rangers and volunteers from the Parañaque City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO Parañaque), and Aseana Business Park, participated in the cleanup. Together they netted 985 sacks of mixed waste from the manmade channel and its surroundings.
The Redemptorist Water Channel was created to ease flooding in areas of Parañaque and Pasay cities.
The cleanup is part of government efforts to rehabilitate Manila Bay while enhancing the awareness of the community on the state of waterways within Metro Manila.
