John Hay Management Corporation’s estero clean-up yields 800kg of solid wastes

Sep 25, 2017

BAGUIO CITY- John Hay Management Corporation (JHMC) participated in an orchestrated clean-up on rivers, creeks and waterways through the Environmental Management Bureau-CAR’s Adopt-an-Estero/Waterbody Program which coincides with the International Coastal Clean Up Celebration and September as the National Clean up Month.
JHMC employees including its security services provider, the Maximum Security and Services Corporation (MSSC) conducted cleaning and dredging along the 700-meter stretch of the Loakan Creek to the convergence of the Bued River.
A total of 811kg of solid wastes were gathered.  The pieces of trash collected from the clean-up drive come from everyday human consumption activities like food wrappers, plastic bags, cans, diapers, and bottles which if improperly disposed will pollute larger bodies of water endangering the aquatic life.
Last year, the EMB-CAR and the JHMC forged a partnership through a memorandum of agreement to develop, improve, and restore the water quality in the adopted stretch in order to control flooding and address the city’s solid waste problem.
A renowned advocate of environmental protection and preservation, the JHMC through the leadership of its President and CEO, Allan R. Garcia, strengthens clean-up drive initiatives and ensures its stakeholders a clean, free from trash, forest watershed.
With the pressing issues and concerns on climate change and waste management, the corporation remains active in participating with the various environmental awareness and campaigns of the government and supports the present government’s environmental plans and programs as part of its corporate social responsibility projects. PR / ABN
