It was early in the morning when the team, the barangay council and some of the residents with their just-woke-up faces started cleaning the streets of Barangay Venus.

The clean-up drive started at the boundary near Poblacion Bajo and ended at the boundary at Barangay Josefina.

From this activity, our team have found out that 70% or majority of the wastes collected were non-biodegradable, specifically, plastic cellophanes, bottles and wrappers. Estimated 20% of the waste collected were biodegradable (dried leaves) and 8% of the collected wastes were residual (tissues, candy wrappers) and 2% were special wastes (gasoline bottles). This led us to the inference that most of the wastes along the highways were from travelers.

They were properly disposed at the Barangay's Materials Recovery Facility located at Purok Uranus. This was followed by the installation of an informative signage at the heart of Barangay Venus, the waiting shed few meters from the barangay hall, to remind them of their garbage collection schedule as well as to remind them of their responsibility segregate their wastes at home as part of the mandate of R.A. 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2003.

Another clean-up drive activity was conducted with the students of Barangay Venus as part of their Pulot Basura activity every friday afternoon. The said activity followed the recycling activity conducted that morning.
