In support to the Clean-Up Surigao Campaign and Advocacy for Clean Environment & its Sustainability (ACES) Program of the Provincial Government of Surigao del Norte, the local government unit of Alegria readily accepted/implemented this environmental campaign and program and the same was advocated to the 12 barangays of the municipality under similar program tagged as Environmental Sustainability and Management of Alegria (ESMA) Program.
Last year (2008), LGU Alegria participated in the 1st Clean-Up Surigao campaign drive which targeted the municipal public market as the area to be cleaned up with assorted garbage spearheaded by the municipal officials led by Mayor Dominador G. Esma, Jr., LGU employees, barangay officials and the public. The LGU also actively involved in the province wide search for the Cleanest & Greenest Municipality of which Alegria was awarded as one of the top performing LGU and obtained special award as the Cleanest Public Toilet among the 21 municipalities of the province.
On September 19, 2009, LGU Alegria observed the 2nd Clean-Up Surigao campaign and this time, the area targeted for garbage collection was at the newly completed Poblacion to Lakeshore FMR road with docking area and simultaneously, tree planting was conducted along the roadside headed by no less than the Municipal Mayor, Hon. Dominador G. Esma, Jr.. Each employee had been given a quota to plant 5 mahogany seedlings at a distance of 2 meters apart going to the lakeshore direction with an approximate distance of 400 meters.
During the 2nd search for the Cleanest & Greenest municipality that falls in the last quarter of this year 2009, it is the commitment of LGU Alegria to participate in the environmental program of the province.
