MANILA, (PIA) -- At least 1,100 bags of garbage were collected by volunteers over the weekend in the national government's latest cleanup drive along the coastline of Malabon City.

Led by Interior and Local Government Secretary Benhur Abalos Jr. and Malabon Mayor Jeannie Sandoval, the implementation of the "Kalinisan" or "Kalinga at Inisyatiba para sa Malinis na Bayan" program of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. was conducted along the Dampalit Megadike Park along M. Sioson street.

Mayor Sandoval said more than 1,800 government workers and volunteers participated which started around 5 am over the weekend.

For his part, Abalos said the program, which started at Baseco Beach in Manila, aims to instill in every Filipino the importance of cleanliness and volunteerism.

Sandoval announced that the situation in Malabon has improved after they implemented the Marcos administration's Kalinisan program because there were fewer floods experienced in the city.

The Kalinisan program encourages Filipinos to maintain a clean and safe community. (PIA-NCR)
