In observance of the 36th International Coastal Clean-up (ICC) Day with the theme “Fighting for Trash Free Seas – Pilipinas: Ending the Flow of Trash at the Source”, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Region 1 spearheaded a coastal clean-up.
The annual event aims to educate people and create solutions to the problems of solid waste and litter in coastal areas and create solutions to these problems.
The said activity was held at PPMC’s Poro Point Baywalk last September 16, 2022, with almost 30 participants from DENR employees, Poro MPA Management Council personnel, and other invited guests.
The Poro Point Freeport Zone used to house the former Wallace Air Station. The enactment of Republic Act 7227 (Bases Conversion and Development Act) on March 19, 1992 and Proclamation No. 216 on July 27, 1993 effectively transferred the stewardship of the Freeport to the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) to facilitate its conversion into a productive economic growth center.
