Rotary collects 70 bags of trash in coastal cleanup

The coastal clean-up drive in Bacolod City yesterday*

Members of the Rotary Club of Bacolod Marapara, the Rotaract Club of Marapara, and Barangay 35 Council picked up mountains of trash at the Reclamation Area in Bacolod City yesterday morning.

This was the first in what will be a year-long series of clean-ups, dubbed the “Coastal Clean-Up Drive: Supporting the Environment”, a press release from the club said.

Led by incoming president of Marapara Rotary, Rolando Corona, and Rotaract Marapara president, Mina Retita, the volunteers collected more than 70 bags of trash.

“Tons of trash is deposited each year on our coasts. It’s unsightly and a health hazard to us all as well as an environmental hazard for marine life. Thanks to our volunteers today, we are pleased to have the opportunity to help the community have a cleaner and healthier environment,” Corona said.

Retita added that she hopes the project will help create wider awareness among residents on the need to protect the environment.

The next coastal clean-up drive is scheduled in June, the press release added.*
