A man from PhilEco dumpsite swims in the polluted waters of Pier 18. The dumpsite is illegally operating by the shores of Manila Bay. The facility violates existing laws such as the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act (RA 9003), the Clean Water Act (RA 8275) and the Clean Air Act (RA 8749). Greenpeace and EcoWaste Coalition are calling for the immediate closure of the dump, as well as for its clean-up and rehabilitation.
