THE Iloilo City Government will temporarily provide 300 kaings or bamboo baskets as trash bins around downtown area during the Dinagyang 2020 highlights this weekend.
Mayor Jerry Treñas hopes this will provide solution to indiscriminate throwing of garbage during the festivities.
But he clarified that culprits will be issued with citation tickets when caught littering.
City Hall has also contracted additional 50 portalets to augment 12 city-owned portalets for sanitation purposes.
