The KALINISAN program is a convergence initiative among public offices aimed at maintaining and providing a healthy and safe environment for all Filipinos by empowering local government units (LGUs) and enabling community participation.
Through simultaneous cleanup drives and KALINISAN activities, the program would raise awareness and encourage participation among Filipino citizens in environmental responsibility through proper solid waste management.
This program of the DILG urges LGUs to invest in programs, projects, and activities on solid waste management and ecological practices, as well as set up a recognition system for the cleanest municipalities in their respective jurisdiction. (-30-)
