As part of our proactive initiatives in maintaining a clean and green neighborhood, we are embarking an easier and more doable undertaking that is : GARBAGE SEGREGATION.
To effectively manage a garbage segregation program, the availability of garbage bins to segregate different types of waste is imperative, in order for the 3R's of garbage management : REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE to take its course.
The RATIONALE behind this initiative of the GARBAGE BINS is to IMPLEMENT GARBAGE SEGREGATTION IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD...SEPARATING THE BIODEGRDABLE WASTE FROM THE NON BIODEGRADABLE WASTE!
The program is a vital compliance to the provisions of Republic Act 9003, otherwise known as the Philippine Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000, and as a mitigating scheme on climate change.
In Layman's term...ILAIN, ang mga plastic, botleya nga pwede ma recycle or re-use. ILAIN pod, ang mga MALATA ug DILI MALATA..sama sa Carton, Papel ug styro foam ...FOOD WASTE...mga sobra nga pagkaon para sayon na lamang kuha-on sa mga adunay piggery.
The garbage must be segregated at source or at the household level and will be deposited to the designated garbage bins.
To this effect, WE CAN DO A COLOR CODING OF THE GARBAGE BINS FOR EASY IDENTIFICATION AND LABEL THEM ACCORDINGLY..
There is no standard color coding scheme prescribed by DENR so therefore the choice of color is for you to decide depending on the paint color supply availability that will be enough to ensure uniformity.
Generally: GREEN is used for the BIODEGRADABLE waste, YELLOW for the NON-BIODEGRABLE,
ONCE THE GARBAGE BINS ARE READY... AN INFORMATION DRIVE TO EDUCATE THE LOCALS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD NEEDS TO BE UNDERTAKEN...ONCE THE GARBAGE SEGREGATION IS IN EFFECT, REUSE AND RECYCLING INITIATIVES ARE ENCOURAGE.
NO MISSION IS IMPOSSIBLE OR BIG ENOUGH IF WE ALL JOIN HANDS and DO OUR SHARE!!!
LET US BE GOOD AGENTS FOR CHANGE!
