They collected trash along the 3-kilometer stretch of the shoreline.
Miss Earth beauties 2012 were also present at the said cleaning program.
Meanwhile, Local divers from Rosario and the Philippine Coast Guard, conducted an underwater clean-up.
Another clean-up drive where residents dredged and cleaned waterways was also conducted in Quezon City,.
Tons of garbage were removed from waterways as hundreds of residents joined in the effort.
In Barangay Baesa, all sorts of garbage were removed from the esteros, which caused deep flooding during the strong “habagat” rains last August.
