The DENR- Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office raised concern over the election campaign materials that will be left behind after the elections without the existence of an ordinance that addresses how to clean up the campaign posters after the election.

“Yung Green Coalition meron silang advice. Yung mga pulitiko bahala na sila sa kanilang mga kalat. Makikipag-coordinate din kami sa LGUs at tutulong kami sa clean up. So ngayong Month of the Ccean, magiging isang activity natin yung maglilinis ng mga campaign material na iiwan,” said Eriberto Saños, OIC of the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office.

“Mayroon namang mga kandidatong nagliligpit pero mas marami ang hindi. Basta we will take initiative,” Saños added. He also encouraged the public to join clean up drives or simply take down campaign materials and other garbage and dispose it properly.

Even some citizens also expressed concerns regarding the campaign materials, “Sobrang dami nga, sana maitapon nang maayos at hindi yung iniiwan lang na nakadikit saka nakakalat sa paligid,” Grace, a college student, told PDN.

“Yung nagkabit sila din dapat yung magtanggal at magtapon, meron diba tayong [slogan] na tapat ko, linis ko; dapat meron ding dikit ko, ligpit ko kasi hindi naman pwede na iwanan mo lang yan jan, nakakahiya din para sa mga pulitiko kasi makikita mo kung sino yung mga hindi naglilipit ng mga pangkampanya nila, ” Rony, a tricycle driver, stated.
