MANILA - Pasig City was named as the National Capital Region's most improved local government unit in environmental health services, the mayor of the city announced on Wednesday.

"Congratulations to our Sanitation Section... we are the #1 Most Improved LGU in Environmental Health Services!!" Sotto said in a tweet.
