MANILA, Philippines — The Manila city government on Friday said that 68 truckloads or 330 tons of garbage were collected during the annual “Traslacion” of the Black Nazarene.

In a separate statement, environment watchdog EcoWaste Coalition lamented the trash left by the devotees, despite repeated reminders.

“The call for an environmentally-responsible expression of piety and devotion to the Black Nazarene again fell on deaf ears,” EcoWaste Coalition zero-waste campaigner  Jove Benosa said.

“However, we remain confident that the situation will improve in the coming years as more devotees listen and respond to the call for ecological conversion, which is essential as the nation confronts the impact of global plastic, chemical and climate crisis,” he added.
