LOOK: Despite repeated appeals, devotees litter Quirino Grandstand

Despite repeated appeals by Church officials and non-government groups, many devotees of the Black Nazarene left litter at the Quirino Grandstand early Friday.

Hours before the yearly Traslacion was to start from the Quirino Grandstand, garbage could be seen scattered in the area, radio dzBB's Manny Vargas reported.

Photos posted by dzBB's Vargas showed trash, mostly food wrappers, strewn on the ground.

Earlier, the Manila Archdiocese and an ecological group appealed to the devotees to keep this year's feast litter-free.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority also deployed personnel to the area to clean up after the devotees. — Joel Locsin/LBG, GMA News
