DENR Bataan cleans trash from coastal areas

Balanga City, Bataan—The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Bataan has led a coastal cleanup here of water lilies and other trash.

Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Raul Mamac headed the removal of hyacinths and other wastes in coastal Sitio Looc, Brgy. Banawang, Bagac, Bataan.

Community Environment and Natural Resources Office-Bagac personnel headed by OIC Cenro Merliza Torre joined the cleanup. Barangay officials and residents participated in the activity.

Mamac said Penro and Cenro Dinalupihan personnel with respective barangay officials and some residents also conducted cleanups in the coastal areas of Hermosa, Orani, Samal, Abucay, Balanga City, Pilar, Orion, and Limay.

Bad weather last week led to the surge of water lilies in the coastal areas of the province.

Mamac said continuous cleanup of coastal areas will be conducted to lessen or eradicate water hyacinths that affect mangrove areas and block waterways. He said the cleanup is also in line with the Manila Bay Rehabilitation Project.
