The Metro Pacific Tollways South (MPT South), a subsidiary under the umbrella of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), recently inaugurated ‘Linis Barangay’ greening initiative program. The initiative commenced in Barangay Biga II, Silang, Cavite in April, followed by a subsequent launch in Brgy. Aplaya, Kawit, Cavite this May.

This project underscores MPT South’s initiative-taking stance in supporting barangays within its host local government units (LGUs) by aiding in their weekly clean-up drive initiatives. The enthusiastic involvement of the community during these events underscores a collective dedication to environmental preservation.

Various divisions and departments of MPT South, including Communication and Stakeholder Management, Tollway Development Engineering – Project Management Department, and Project Support Services Department, collaborated with project contractors, barangay officials, and volunteers to execute the clean-up activities effectively.

To facilitate these efforts, MPT South supplied essential cleaning materials such as brooms, dustpans, garbage bags, rakes, and shovels.

These provisions significantly contributed to the efficiency of the clean-up endeavors. Expressing gr atitude for the initiative, Barangay Captain Joseline Revilla remarked, “Nagpapasalamat kami sa pamunuan ng CALAX sa pagvolunteer sa paglilinis dito sa inyong kapitbahay na barangay, Brgy. Biga II, Silang. Malaking bagay po ito pati na rin angdonasyon niyong karagdagang cleaning materials para magamit namin sa mga susunod pa na proyekto,” said Barangay Captain Joseline Revilla.

“We extend our heartfelt appreciation to the leadership of CALAX for volunteering in the clean-up drive here in our neighboring barangay, Brgy. Biga II, Silang. This is of significant importance, as well as your donation of additional cleaning materials, which we can utilize for future projects.”

The Linis Barangay project was designed by MPT South to collaborate with different barangays within its host communities, engaging in monthly clean-up drives to promote cleanliness and sanitation. MPT South remains committed to fostering a cleaner and healthier environment through volunteer engagement and partnerships with local authorities.

Expressing appreciation for the inaugural 'Linis Barangay' Clean-Up Drive, Ms. Arlette V.
