EDSA was littered by six trash bags early morning, which caused a horrible sight in one of the major roads in the metropolis. The content of the trash bags were mostly PPEs, face masks, and gloves.
It was unclear where the trash came from though but the only thing known was that they were found at the northbound lane of EDSA-White Plains in Quezon City as per the Twitter post of James Agustin for Unang Balita.
Later, street sweepers from the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) swept the trash and cleared the road for motorists.
