CITY OF MALOLOS – To further reinforce the partnership and cooperation of the local government in maintaining cleanliness and orderliness in the province, the Provincial Government of Bulacan headed by Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado launched the Kalinisan at Kaayusan ng Kapaligiran sa Barangay, also known as KKK sa Barangay, held at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium, today in this city.

Alvarado said the program is part of his Seven Point Agenda that aims to protect the environment and maintain and ensure the cleanliness and orderliness in the community.

“Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Tungkulin natin na pangalagaan at panatilihing malinis ang ating kapaligiran dahil ito ay hiram lang natin sa Maykapal. Magsama-sama at magtulungan tayo na panatilihin na malinis, maganda at may kaayusan ang ating abang lalawigan na makatutulong sa ating pag-unlad,” said Alvarado.

The governor also stated that the program aims to recognize all the Natatanging Barangay that continues to maintain cleanliness and orderliness in their community which is one of the elements of a sustainable community.

According to Provincial Administrator Eugenio Payongayong, head of the provincial KKK Task Force, three Natatanging Barangay sa Kalinisan at Kaayusan ng Kapaligiran will be selected in every town and city in the province.

The cleanest barangay that will be chosen will strictly undergo an evaluation in the municipal level and validation in the provincial level.
