September 1, 2011 to September 30, 2011
The month of September was declared as National Cleanup Month by then Pres. Fidel V. Ramos through Presidential Proclamation No. 244. This was later reinforced by the declaration of the third Saturday of September as International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) Day by Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo through Presidential Proclamation No. 470.
This event encourages communities to clean up, fix and conserve the environment as the country’s contribution to the worldwide environmental preservation efforts.
