Trash rangers to catch those who litter the sea

DAVAO City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has ordered to organize environmental rangers to apprehend those who throw their garbage to the sea.

City Environment and Natural Resources (Cenro) head Eliza Madrazo said that the program, which is part of the government’s efforts to clean coastal areas, will be launched in August.

"The efforts of the government is [evident], even the mayor is asking to organize environmental rangers to apprehend those who do not dispose properly. For our part, we will participate in the clean up, and other agencies will be responsible for the apprehensions," Engineer Madrazo said.

Madrazo added that about 70 individuals will be tapped for the task in coordination with the Central 911, other maritime offices, and the coastguard.

“A person who is not afraid to apprehend, we will provide them uniforms so that they can be identified,” she said in describing those they will be hiring for the job.

The rangers will be trained by the Central 911 office and the Coast Guard.

Madrazo said coastal barnagays have scheduled coastal cleanups but only a few conduct these regularly.
