Angel Montermoso, who saw the act, commended it through a Facebook post on March 16: “Woah. Maulaw ta dili taga diri pero syay ga ayos mga gubang basurahan diris boulevard. Thank you sir! God bless you po!”

(It is embarrassing because he’s not from here but he fixed those trash bins in the boulevard. Thank you sir! God bless you!)

According to Montermoso, she doesn’t know the foreigner personally and just happened to see him fixing the trash bin along Rizal Boulevard, Dumaguete City.

“I don’t really know him personally, but I asked permission to take a photo of him fixing the trash bins,” she told INQUIRER.net.

Montermoso added that she’s unsure if the foreigner is getting paid for fixing the trash bins. However, she said that she posted the photo just because she wants the man to be recognized and appreciated.

“I think it is also a wake up call for us to be more mindful and should contribute in taking care of our surroundings, especially our tourist spots,” she said. JB
