Marikina City's Street Cleaner-on-Wheels

Lingkod Bayan Diaries: Katangi-tanging Kawani

The City of Marikina is admired by many people for its cleanliness, but often we know little of the people who make this possible. One of them is Mr. Gelson A. Rili, Laborer II of the City Environment Management Office. His diligence and commitment to keeping the city tidy not only earns him praises from his peers, co-workers, and fellow Marikenyos; he was awarded the Dangal ng Bayan at the Malacanan Palace in 2018, with no less than the President of the Philippines handing him the award.

A devoted family man, he perseveres amid the hazards of his job and the endless demand of public service.

Get to know Gelson A. Rili in this episode of Lingkod Bayan Diaries: Katangi-Tanging Kawani.
