Manila has launched a search for the “cleanest and greenest” barangay in every district of the nation’s capital, according to Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso.

According to the search mechanics Domagoso shared, the winning barangays will each be given a cash prize of one million pesos for their “betterment and improvement” in terms of  “ecological solid waste management, and the creation of clean and green projects as suggested by the DILG (Department of the Interior and Local Government).”

A technical working group (TWG) composed of representatives from DILG, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), and Department of Science and Technology (DOST) will deliberate the shortlisted barangays for final validation.

The memorandum for the contest will be disseminated to all barangays through the Manila Barangay Bureau.

On Oct. 8 last year, Domagoso signed an executive order mandating all 896 barangays and frontline City Hall offices to conduct a weekly clean-up drive in the nation’s capital and their respective areas.
