MMDA Anti-Littering Law

Sep 14, 2010 by

MMDA will re-implement Regulation Number 96-009 or the Anti-Littering Law starting September 16, 2010

The said regulation prohibits littering, dumping, and throwing of garbage or any kind of waste in open or public places. Moreover, both public and private business establishments are required to maintain the cleanliness of their frontages and immediate surroundings.

Violators will be fined PhP500 to PhP1,000 and community service for those who cannot afford to pay the fines.

I hope they also introduce a MMDA Anti-Kotong Law. On my daily commute, I always see some MMDA officers on the prey for some motorists. I believe that their job is to guide motorists not to commit traffic violations instead of waiting for them to make some mistakes and milking on them.
