Just recently, the Iloilo City Government posted via Facebook that trash bins, made of kaings or bamboo basket, will be put around the downtown area to minimize, if not eradicate, littering. According to Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas, the wastebasket will provide a solution to indiscriminate throwing of garbage during festivities.
“The Iloilo City Government will temporarily provide kaings or bamboo baskets as trash bins around downtown area during Dinagyang 2020 highlights on the fourth week of January. Mayor Jerry P. Treñas hopes this will provide a solution to indiscriminate throwing of garbage during the festivities,” in a Facebook post by the Iloilo City Government.
Moreover, the post states that culprits will be issued citation tickets.
“Cleanliness of streets and public places poses a challenge as huge crowd converges to celebrate the city’s premier cultural, religious and tourism celebration which climaxes on last weekend of the month,” also stated in the post.
