About four tons of trash were collected along the coastal barangay of Punta Taytay following the coastal cleanup drive initiated by Abomar Equipment Sales Corporation with student volunteers on Friday, May 3.

More than 200 volunteers from Sum-ag National High School, the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos, local barangay officials, and residents from Barangay Punta Taytay took part in the activity to promote and engage people in the community in the removal of trash and debris from beaches, and to raise awareness on the extent of the marine debris problem.

Bacolod councilors Jason Villarosa, Pao Sy, and Kalaw Puentevella also joined the activity with representatives from John Deere and Beach Tech.

Abomar Equipment Sales Corporation, as part of the event, showcased its latest technology for beach cleaning designed to remove various types of waste from the shoreline, including cigarette butts, cans, bottles, and more.

Rafael Majar, CEO of Abomar Equipment Sales Corporation, expressed his appreciation for the involvement of the volunteers and officials stating that the event was a way for the company to give back to the community; further emphasizing the importance of engaging students and locals in environmental efforts.

He also encouraged everyone to continue making a positive impact on the environment and thanked the people involved for their commitment to the cause.

The coastal cleanup campaign underscored the ongoing need for community-driven environmental initiatives and demonstrated how companies like Abomar can play a pivotal role in promoting sustainability and corporate responsibility.*
