DENR: Cleanliness in cemeteries honor the departed

/ 04:50 AM October 31, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has called on the public to maintain cleanliness in cemeteries as a form of respect for the dead.

Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu also reminded local government units (LGUs) to enforce the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act to prevent the accumulation of garbage  alongside huge crowds.

“Let us honor our departed loved ones the proper way, that is to leave them with our prayers, not with our trash,” Cimatu said.

LGUs “need to step up” in their implementation of the law. —Jhesset O. Enano
