Environment Secretary Roy A. Cimatu calls on local chief executives of 178 cities and municipalities around Manila Bay to do their share in the rehabilitation of Manila Bay by cleaning the rivers and esteros within their respective jurisdictions. Cimatu likewise reminded them of their primary responsibility to enforce the provisions of the Ecological Solid Waste Management law, particularly on waste segregation and disposal, as the garbage thrown by local residents in rivers and esteros contribute largely to the pollution of Manila Bay. Cimatu made the call during the Local Chief Executives’ Forum on February 11, 2019 organized by the Department of Interior and Local Government in Manila.#
