LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu — Stressing that the tourism industry is the lifeblood of this historic resort city, Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan now deploys garbage tricycles into the interior streets after cleaning the seas with his coastal clean-up, and the roads with his garbage trucks and street cleaners.
On Thursday, September 1, Chan turned over 12 garbage tricycles to the city’s Clean and Green Department to clean and collect garbage in the inner streets where trucks cannot penetrate.
The mayor also hired additional personnel to do the job. Some of these garbage tricycle drivers are drug surrenderees who wish to “turn a new leaf” and lead a new life.
He pointed out that the pristine beaches, crystal clear seas, and the clean city will surely attract local and foreign tourists which will help boost this city’s economy. (ai/mtvn)
