The said activity was carried out by almost 10,000 volunteers coming from different parts of Luzon. Most of them were students and teachers from various institutions. The program started at 7:00 in the morning, and ended before lunch. Volunteers collected all the trash according to its kind. All the collected garbage was placed in sacks and brought to the weighing station so that it could be recorded on the Data Form. The purpose of the Data Form is to monitor the kind of trash that is thrown in the Manila Bay.
