Marikina City has suffered much from the floods brought by Typhoon Ondoy.
The floods have subsided in most of the affected areas. However, sanitation has proven to be one of the problems the typhoon has left.
Mud is prominent everywhere and garbage is at an all-time high. Due to the enormous amount of trash, the fields alongside Sumulong Highway has served as a temporary dumpsite until the garbage trucks can pick them up.
The heaps of garbage though causes a foul stench within the surrounding areas. Scavengers are also searching the garbage mounds for anything of worth they can salvage.
