Mayor Isko Signs Ordinance Promoting Cleaner Manila Streets

Nobody can stop Mayor Isko Moreno from tidying up the streets of Manila. Aside from his clearing operations along Divisoria and Recto, the young mayor continues to sweeps the city clean with another ordinance.

On October 25, Moreno approved City Ordinance 8572 or Tapat Ko – Linis Ko, which prohibits urban dwellers from hanging laundry and disposing of garbage in inappropriate places. This ordinance ensures that the cleanliness and orderliness of the city of Manila will not be disrupted. It also encourages citizens to be more disciplined and responsible when carrying out their day-to-day activities.

According to CNN Philippines, hanging of articles of clothing in electrical wires, windows, and posts is not allowed. People are also discouraged from washing and drying clothes along sidewalks, streets, alleyways, and gutters.

Disposal of trash along the streets is also banned in the city of Manila. Moreover, citizens are no longer allowed to let their pets defecate outside their properties.

The newly signed decree also specifies that the construction of pens and cages for pets is restricted. Aside from that, the ordinance mentions that the installation of gates and fences is discouraged.

In addition, the city of Manila now bans “storing, dumping, placing wastes, debris, junk, or under repair vehicles, dilapidated appliances, and other objects in any part of the road, street, or avenue, or in any sidewalk which may impede or obstruct vehicular and pedestrian traffic.”

Individuals who will violate this enactment will be penalized. According to the ordinance, anyone who does not comply with Manila’s new rules and regulations will face a fine amounting from Php. 500 to Php. 5,000. There is also a chance for the violator to be subject to detainment that might last up to 30 days. Repeat offenders will face charges.
