Bacolod Coun­cil pushes for in­ter-agency post-cam­paign clean up

Sun Star Bacolod - - Front Page - BY CARLA N. CAÑET

THE Bacolod City Disas­ter Risk Re­duc­tion and Man­age­ment Of­fice (CDRRMO), the Bacolod City Task Force Clean and Green, the De­part­ment of Pub­lic Ser­vices and con­cerned cit­i­zens are asked to help as­sist the lo­cal can­di­dates and rep­re­sen­ta­tives

of na­tional can­di­dates in pulling out their cam­paign ma­te­ri­als and bill­boards and clean­ing up of poster ar­eas right af­ter the May 13, 2019 elec­tions.

This was pro­posed by Coun­cilor Sonya M. Verde­flor and the same was passed by the Sang­gu­ni­ang Pan­lung­sod of Bacolod dur­ing the con­duct of their reg­u­lar ses­sion on Thurs­day, May2.

The said cam­paign ma­te­ri­als are mostly made of non-biodegrad­able plas­tics, tar­pau­lin and pa­per, which if left un­col­lected af­ter the May 13, 2019 elec­tions, would re­sult to huge piles of garbage that would block our city’s drainage and cause flood­ing all over the city once the rainy sea­sons start.

It is ur­gent that Ba­colod­nons get in­volved and help clean-up our city from cam­paign ma­te­ri­als right af­ter elec­tion day to be spear­headed by the city’s DRRMO, DPS and Task Force Clean and Green.*
