LIMAY, Bataan – In participation to the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), the municipality of Limay on Saturday undertook a massive cleanup of its coastlines and conducted a tree-planting activity.

Limay government officials and employees, barangay officials, and volunteers conducted cleanup activities in the coastlines of Barangay Luz and other areas.

Police Hotline Movement Incorporated (PHMI) Bataan Chapter Provincial Directress Yolly Paulo said Mayor Ver Roque led the tree-planting activity in the upland area of Barangay Tundol.

The municipal government of Limay conducted simultaneous coastal cleanup and tree-planting activities in participation to the ICC. Limay officials and employees, local police, CAFGU, and members of PHMI joined the mayor in the tree-planting. Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer Engr. Godofredo De Guzman also joined the activity in Tundol.

The municipality of Samal on Saturday also undertook a mass cleanup not only in the coastal areas but also along roads, inside villages, creeks and rivers.

Bataan Governor Abet Garcia had enjoined all government employees in the province to join in the ICC. The Project Management Office of the capitol distributed cleaning implements used in the cleanup.

The ICC is the world’s largest volunteer effort for ocean’s health. Held every third Saturday of September each year, thousands and thousands of volunteers from around the globe participate, clearing tons of trash from coastlines, rivers, and lakes.
