DMCI Homes reaffirms commitment to Manila Bay Rehab through cleanup of waterways

February 17, 2020

DENR Task Force Tayo Ang Kalikasan Technical Assistant Roberto Feliciano; Rotary Club of Diliman Silangan led by current President Angie Ramos; Rotary International District 3780 represented by Environment Chairman Butch Madarang; and DMCI Homes’ Stellar Place Property Manager Gabriel Tabernilla attended the recent installation of the trash trap in the Pasong Tamo creek in Barangay Culiat, Quezon City.

As part of the company’s efforts of promoting environmental protection and sustainable eco-development, Quadruple-A developer DMCI Homes has reaffirmed its commitment to support the government’s Manila Bay rehabilitation project through the cleanup of Metro Manila’s waterways.

Just recently, DMCI Homes helped in the installation of a floating trash trap in a 1.63-kilometer segment of Pasong Tamo Creek in Quezon City which is part of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ (DENR) Enhanced Adopt-an-Estero campaign with the Rotary Club of Diliman Silangan (RCDS); Rotary International District 3780; the Quezon City Council of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines; and barangays Culiat, Pasong Tamo, and Bahay Toro in Quezon City.

The trash trap installed near DMCI Homes’ Stellar Place condominium community in Barangay Culiat, Quezon City aims to snare trash that finds its way in the Pasong Tamo Creek to prevent them from polluting the waterway and ultimately reach the sea.

 

RCDS PP Popoy Robles is shown helping deploy the trash trap made of fishing net fashioned into a tube with recycled PET bottles, plastic containers with caps which function as floaters. A symbolic case of “trash trapping trash”.

DMCI Homes together with the barangays situated along the waterway were also tasked to monitor the trash trap and coordinate with DENR for the collection of accumulated garbage.

“On behalf of the DENR and Tayo ang Kalikasan, I’d like to thank all our partners in this campaign for helping us in our effort to clean all the waterways in Quezon City that leads to the Manila Bay,” said Mr. Roberto Feliciano, Technical Assistant of DENR’S Task Force Tayo ang Kalikasan.

Feliciano underscored the importance of the campaign as studies have shown that the root cause of the trash problem in Manila Bay are the garbage emanating from the upstream areas and communities.

The thrash trap was fabricated through the help of the Quezon City Council of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines, headed by Dr. Tony Merino also a member of the RCDS.

“This will be a convenient model for other barangays and other Rotary Clubs on how to install the trash trap in their respective areas,” Feliciano added.

For their part, Rotary Club of Diliman Silangan (RCDS) Charter President Rod Bernardo, lauded the contribution and support of private companies such as DMCI Homes for this campaign noting that the enormous task of cleaning the Manila Bay entails a multi-sector approach.

“DMCI Homes has been our partner for the last seven years, initiated as early as 2012 by Past President Bobby Sheen, with then DENR Secretary Ramon Paje and now with DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu. We are glad to have DMCI Homes as a partner in this noble undertaking,” Bernardo said.
