In their latest coastal clean up, members of the Rotary Club of Bacolod-Marapara and the Rotaract Club of Marapara were busy clearing trash at the weekend from the shoreline of Barangay 35 in Bacolod City’s Reclamation area in Negros Occidental.

Assisted by members of the local RAM Guardians, some 50 bags of trash were collected.

“Our ongoing coastal clean up program is making good progress. We’ve been blown away by the enthusiasm and hard work of local residents and officials to help us clean up so many areas. Since we started, we’ve collected several tons of unsightly and dangerous trash from our shorelines, but we’re not done yet. We are planning more clean up events well into 2022,” said Rolando Corona, president of Marapara Rotary.

After the clean up, club members turned over to the to the Barangay 35 RAM Guardians the newly-repaired guardhouse which now features high intensity solar-powered lighting. 

The guardhouse serves two purposes – peace and order and environmental protection by preventing outsiders from dumping garbage in the barangay.
