CSF Recognizes Waste Segregation Champ [ Friday, 27th of June 2014 | 3 years ago ]
According to Environment and Natural Resources officer Engr. Anelle David, San Fernando is one of the LGUs that strictly comply with R.A. 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000.
“By complying with this law, we are able to divert our waste to 59% biodegradable materials from a mere of 12% back in 2002, and this was made possible through the participation of our barangay, thus we are recognizing their efforts” said David.
She noted that having a Material Recovery Facility is a criterion to adjudge the winners.
For the large population category, two consecutive year champion Barangay Maimpis was able to best again other contenders, making it the first hall of fame awardee, followed by Telebastagan, and Sta. Lucia for the second and third place. While for the small population category, a new champion emerged, Barangay Alasas, followed by Dela Paz Sur, and Juliana respectively.
For his part, Mayor Edwin Santiago said that his administration prioritizes programs that promote environmental protection such as waste segregation.
“I am happy to know that down to the barangay level, we are able to instill in the minds of Fernandinos the importance of taking care of our environment” said Santiago underscoring the activity is an example of citizen participation in government.”
“Garbage is a major concern for all of us, even in foreign countries, the only way to solve this is we [government officials] empower stakeholders to help us solve this problem” he added.
He disclosed that the city government is providing as much as P150,000 to its barangay as subsidy for the construction of MRF.
Cash prizes were also given to winners, P15,000 for the first place, P10,000 for the second place and P5,000 for the third place.
