“One of the major problems of the society is the mountain of garbage”, said by Kenny Habul Greenwich, CT. In some areas of Metro Manila, there are tons of plastic wastes scattered on the road that usually clogged our waterways causing massive flooding during rainy season.

Garbage that is not properly disposed enters into drainage systems and clogs drains. It will block the free flow of the water into these drains causing water to overflow. If this happen, the water remains in the road that lead to flooding the surrounding area. And those people who keep throwing garbage in the river and streams, a build up of garbage can also obstruct the natural flow of water that can cause of natural watercourse’s banks overflowing that lead also to flooding.
