City of San Fernando cleans for Guinness

THE City Government of San Fernando led by Mayor Oscar Rodriguez will aim for a Guinness World Record as it embarks on a massive and simultaneous citywide clean-up drive from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on February 1 this year.

The projected biggest clean-up drive ever will involve an estimated 200,000 participants and volunteers from schools, city hall, the private sector, Philippine Army, Philippine National Police, barangays, non-government organizations, common folk, and government agencies like the Departments of Environment and Natural Resources, Public Works and Highways, Agriculture, Budget and Management, Education, Health, Social Welfare and Development, Tourism and the Bureau of Internal Revenue.

According to Regina Rodriguez of the City Environment and Natural Resources Office -- which conceptualized citywide clean-up -- the drive will cover the stretch of MacArthur Highway from Barangay Telabastagan to Barangay San Nicolas.

It will involve the cleaning of barangays, schools, and roadsides and in particular waterways and canals snaking from the north, passing through Barangay Saguin and Magliman down to the San Fernando River in Barangay San Juan.

Eastward, the clean-up will take on the inner waterways that cascade via the Del Carmen Creek and will also cover small rivers in inner city barangays like Lourdes, Del Pilar and Sta. Teresita.
