Aklan Village Offers Reward Against Diaper Litterbugs

Want to earn a clean and fast PHP3,000?

There’s a village that would give anyone such amount. How? By catching those who are littering used, stinky diapers.

The Barangay Bagto council here announced the offer after getting exasperated of seeing used diapers thrown by irresponsible parents or guardians traversing the highway.

Village chair Renee Layson said that littering is now a primary concern of their barangay.

He noted the ugly sight and smell of used diapers littered along the highway is not good for the area’s image.

The Department of Public Works and Highways is currently constructing a new provincial road, traversing the village, that will shorten the route from Iloilo to Caticlan, the jump off point to Boracay island.

Layson said because of the new road infrastructure leading to the primary tourist destination in Western Visayas, there is a need for them to also ensure cleanliness in their barangay.

The barangay council urged “complainants” to take a picture of those who are littering to make sure their accusations are reliable, and they could get the cash reward. (PNA) LAP/BS/AJP/JNA/KVB
