Mayor calls for proper waste segregation-A A +A
Tuesday, July 3, 2012
SANTO TOMAS – Mayor Joselito Naguit recently urged his constituents to observe proper waste segregation in order to reduce the volume of domestic garbage produced in this town.
“Buri kuna ring samantalan ing pamikatagun ayni. Anyaran ku kareng kabalen tamu keni Sto. Tomas na mag-segregate tamung basura para makasaup tamu king programa ng Nanay,” Naguit said.
The mayor said that with proper waste segregation, the hauling expenses will be reduced, to the benefit of the residents and Municipal Government.
Earlier, the Provincial Government advocated the establishment of material recovery facilities (MRFs) in different places in the province. But only a few villages have come up with their own operational MRFs.
This is despite the massive campaign on waste segregation including the establishment of clustered MRFs.
Governor Lilia Pineda also previously distributed dump trucks in all towns in the province to further bolster the campaign on waste segregation.
The junkshop workers, likewise, were given garbage carts or “kariton” as they are treated partners of the Provincial Government in solid waste management.
