THE weather is one of the challenges that community volunteer Max Aguon has to deal with whenever he picks up trash in beach areas during weekends.

“But these rainy days will not stop me from doing my job,” he said.

On Saturday, he collected 12 bags of trash from Pakpak Beach in San Antonio to Paupau Beach in San Roque.

“There are lots of trash from both sides of the road,” he said, adding that he started his cleanup at 9 a.m. and completed it at 1 p.m.

On Sunday, Aguon said he started early, cleaning the surroundings at Sugar Dock Beach to prepare the area for  beachgoers.

He said people will usually give him food and refreshments to express  their appreciation.

“They are also thankful that we leveled the ground so their vehicle will not get bogged down in the sand,” he added.

On Thursday, the Bantalan Boys helped repair the broken shower at Sugar Dock Beach, Aguon said.

The Bantalan Boys, who frequent the area, also help maintain the cleanliness of the beach and repair the facilities there, he added.
