Netizen Expresses Frustrations & Disappointments over Trash in Front of JP Morgan Building In BGC

While Sweden has been making history in the world of recycling its trash, The Philippines has been struggling to upgrade their solid waste management system due to low budgets and lack of expertise. The small nation of Sweden was already ahead of the game since 2012. Back then it was only 96% of their trash and the remaining 3% moved up in just two years. Now that is impressive.

Their aggressive recycling policy goes in an order of importance: Prevention, reuse, alternatives and disposal in landfill. This year, only 1% of their waste goes to the landfill.

Meanwhile, Frances Estrada Arcadio took to Facebook to vent her frustrations and disappointments over trash in front of JP Morgan Building in Bonifacio Global City.

On her Facebook account she wrote:

Infront of JP Morgan bldg. May tumubong bagong mga bulaklak – coffee cups at cigarette butts ang tawag. Tanim ng mga taong ismarte manamit, inglisero at inglisera, matatalino daw pero mga wala naman pakundangan at malasakit sa kalikasan. Saka magrereklamo kapag binaha. Nakakalungkot lang isipin dahil sa kapwang nagpapanatili ng kalinisan wala din silang pakealam sa pinagpaguran.

Fort Bonifacio has completely changed the game in terms of urban development in Metro Manila. In your first visit to the Fort, the one thing you’d ever notice is how the place is so different than the the central business districts in Makati, Ortigas, Quezon City and Manila. Because of these things, BGC has fully become the place to do business in by government offices, private companies, and startups.

A city’s clean image is directly linked to how the city manages its waste. Visitors have observed the ample number of colorful trash cans in several public locations in the city. Since all of the buildings in the area are owned by developers, a proper waste management program is usually in place to ensure that trash does not destroy the clean image of BGC.

But in reality, the greatest challenge really is how to discipline the people.

    DAMI NAGKALAT DYAN MGA WALANG URBANIDAD. WALANG PAKIALAM.

  • mollycule

    May mga naglilinis naman cyan e kaya ok lang atsaka cute nga e parang christmas tree lang

  • metamorphosis

    mga call cener agent na walang disiplina nagkalat yan only in the Philippines.

  • Peek-a-boo

    Yan ang mga taong selfish at walang disiplina palibhasa mga baboy at walang urbanidad. Hindi tinuruan ng mga magulang ng tamang pagtapon ng basura e ang daming basurahan sa lugar na yan.

  • mixology

    Walang basagan ng trip!

  • CapitanHook

    For those callprits stop throwing everywhere because it stinks in the eyes of everyone.

    • Moron5

      Oh well your English stinks big time. Stupid.

    • Banana

      Ano daw? Anong callprits?haha

  • CapitanHook

    Mga yogi people linis linis din pag may time. Lumalabas ang tunny na anyo kung san san lang nagtatapon ng basura.

  • BettinaKarlo

    Ayusin nga natin to mga kuya at ate! nakakahiya.

  • Olats

    Baka naman nakalimutan lang nila? OA naman ni ate. para plastic cups lang e. recyclable naman yan.

  • greenpeace

    This is annoying pwede naman siguro itapon sa basurahan. grabe naman grabe kelan pa matututo? Ang taas pa naman ng mga pinagaralan ng mga tao dito. Kakastress tabs kayo ng very light.

  • Kalikasan.ph

    Magkano ang values?

  • Edu.Magsanoc

    kanina pag daan ko meron nyan.

  • Petronash

    Sinong guilty? Taas ang paa. Hahaha

  • KORKRAWR

    Maybe…..just maybe…if we had a trash can present every few steps away just like in HK, people would actually throw them properly instead of leaving them else where.

    • Bartolina

      may basurahan man o wala it’s still our responsibility to throw them properly sa tamang basurahan. Don’t wish na maging katulad ng sa HK dahil may basurahan man o wala ang Pilipino walang disiplina at maraming excuses parang ikaw. I’d like to assume isa ka sa mga gumagawa nito based on your comments. Di kasi acceptable ang reasoning mo na if we had a trash can present like in HK. Maybe you can look around —nagkalat ang trash can sa lugar na yan.

    • Johnny Burger

      See that purple box in the photo? I think that’s one of those bins.

    • David Fletcher

      Hey son all trash or waste should be recycled. Nothing should be wasted. Metal, glass and paper have been recycled for decades. Now plastic is finally getting more attention. By the way KORKRAWR can you check that dumpster and grab that for your mom.

  • filthyrich

    Respect people.

  • Stephen Schmidt

    Companies should start paying for the waste that their produce creates. the more mass their packaging creates, the higher payment. Their produce brings waste into cities, making them profit, so they should be obliged to pay for landfills and garbage processing companies.

  • tedeibert klomped

    Not be surprised with the Philipino mentality. The Philippino’s need to stop this. Generation after generation in a hopeless third world country is not going to solve anything.

  • Joel Rinon

    Mga walang utak nakakahiya kayo. Lakas nyo magreklammo sa gobyerno pero kayo mga sarili nyo di nyo kayang tulungan mga sarili nya.

  • สุวิทย์ สุวิช

    Philippinos love to blame their government for everything. No no no nothing is my fault…. IT’S ALL THE GOVERNMENT!!!

  • Highrock Tendales

    digusting, disgusting human beings

  • Bisdakako

    Kaya ayokong tumira ng Maynila.

  • pampam

    Those ‘squatters’ should go their respective province. Look what they’ve done to Pasig River. Look like a trash can. They thought there is a good life in Manila because of bright lights. They have no discipline in managing their waste. They just throw it anywhere they want.

  • john.hamilton

    OH WELL NOTHING NEW, PHILIPPINE PEOPLE ARE LIVING LIKE RATS.

  • Araguy

  • LITTLEREIDRIDINGHOARD

    Ito ang mukha ng bansang saradong Katoliko at bansang mahusay sa Ingles.Ang mga Hapon ay mahina sa Ingles pero maunlad sila. “Cleanliness is next to Godliness” kasabihan ng mga Katoliko,pero ano ang malinis dito?

  • Spacejamby

    Kailangan kayurin, kayasin at sunugin ang CANCER ng Bansang Pilipinas! CHAROT

  • Gabriela

    Kaya ang image ng Pilipinas sa ibang bansa ay bansa ng Iskwater at basura ay dahil dito.Ang mga turista pagbaba ng eroplano ay hindi lamang magagandang view ang nakikita kasama narin ang ibat ibang bagay na katulad nito.Sabi ng kasamahan kong Kano sa trabajo ay “I don’t want to go to P. I. coz I don’t want to die of polluted water”.

  • firstimpression

    wala nakong masasabi. lahat nsabi nyu na . haha XD

  • theRandomX

    May pera daw kasi sa basura.

  • Gabo4President

    Kailangan magkaroon ng accountability tayong mga pilipino kaya hindi umaasenso.

  • NarutoSR

    Hiyang hiya naman ako sa utak mo?

  • RubySicat

    Filipinos are poor bastards because they choose to…go on to the countryside and start farming lazy fucks. Ang tatamad nyo basura lang di pa maitapon.

  • trashytalk

  • Abbie.B

    Yan ba uso sa BGC?

  • EOP

    Bukod sana sa English only policy, Sana isama sa code of ethics ng kumpanya nila na mali ang pagtatapon ng basura ng sa kung saan saan. Ang dugyot kasi tingnan I just find it so hard to believe na yung iba walang pakialam. Just my two cents.

  • pinoyhenyo

    Naku Hindi lng jp Morgan employees gumagawa Nyan

  • babe

    Maglagay kasi ng basurahan diba?

  • mae

    I used to be a CC agent and trainer but I have never considered my intelligence to be above anyone else’s, even that of the drunK buffoon ‘the one’. Spelling and English fluency doesn’t measure one’s intelligence. But yes, I get it, you, too are entitled TO your own opinion. 😉
    Oh to get back to the topic, we all should learn how to responsible citizens no matter what IQ level, degree, economic or social status we have.

    • aethiest28

      People from the call center industry is no longer the same as it was before, the standard? It’s way different. I just hope that companies like Chase and other corporations too not just in call centers will take this into consideration and include cleanliness as part of their company ethics. Filipino people wake up!

  • Jo jo

    why don’t you try to be a call center agent.. then you’ll know that they are not “just call center agents”.. ^_^ just saying

    • The one

      And be like you? No way!

  • idontknow

    Kawawang pinas, pano kse kramihan sa mga pilipino wlang utak, I don’t genearlize people but this is true.

  • Intsik Beho

    Hope call center companies in Bgc do something to help or not just in Bgc.

  • popoy

    Oh please people may naglilinis naman sa lugar na yan wag OA

  • Joe Wing

    would someone please drop a few atomic bombs on this country to wipe out garbage, corruption, poverty and catholic church. this country needs a fresh start desperately.

    • Peppermint

      You’re evil.

  • jeng macaraeg

    Wow that’s sad I’m filipino too and I’m lucky to be living in the US now. I hate metro manila because of this.

  • Michaelangelo

    Filipinos are dirty people. They worship and praise White people but they hate other Asians. They let White people come into their country and molest their children.

  • Gerald88

    No one cares about this trust me. These call center agents only care about money.

  • Thrillmountains

    This world has its DIRT poor and its FILTHY rich. And often the dirt poor reside in countries like the philippines where the leaders are filthy rich.

  • 1d

    maybe kicking these call center agents in the balls is a gud idea huh?

  • nixon

    It’s more fun in the Philippines… oh wait.

  • Jum1972

    There is a job opening in the UK “Prince William, Kate looking for super servant to run household ” I bet half the Philippines will apply. Good luck.

  • kokomarteen

          innogame already circled the light blue trashcan. and there is also a purple one right before that. im surprised you did not see it since innogame is already pointing it out for you.

  • taga_net2

    there are plenty of trash cans around BGC, but a lot of trash on the ground and plants especially areas near the bus stations. The one near Net1, dalawang hakbang na lang hindi pa maitapon ng maayos ang basura!

  • bgcagent

    eh hindi naman kasi nakikita at visible ang mga basurahan dyan lakihan at maging visible sana and wala bang street sweepers sa lugar na to? trabaho nila angmaglinis ng kalat all the time!

    • innogame

      Sa bgc ka ba nagttrabaho? May basurahan dyan sa pics o. So kapag wala kang nakitang basurahan, itatapon mo na lang kung san san yung basura mo?

  • piggyback

    Mga baboy na call center agent kasing baboy ng trabaho nila, pangangaliwa, pagiging kabit, mga pariwara ang buhay, puro yosi at inom, resulting into pagiging baboy.
