More or less 12,000 Dabawenyos joined the simultaneous National Clean Up Day on September 17.

Engr. Elisa Madrazo, chief of City Environment and National Resources Office (Cenro), said participants came from national and local government agencies, non-government organizations, the private sector, barangays, academe and other civic groups contributed their share in cleaning up communities across the city — from highlands to coastal villages.

Madrazo said the exact volume of garbage collected is still being determined but the clean-up drive produced a positive result.

Called “Bayan ko, Linis ko”, the National Clean-Up Day was part of the activities lined up for the whole month of September that was declared National Clean-up Month based on Proclamation No. 244, Series of 1993.

Madrazo urged Dabawenyos to make everyday a clean-up day in Davao. CIO
