CSF Awards MRF Materials To HOAs [ Wednesday, 21st of January 2015 | 2 years ago ]

The City Government of San Fernando through its environment and natural resources office has awarded building materials for the construction of materials recovery facilities [MRF] to some 21 Homeowners Associations [HOA] in line with the celebration of the Zero Waste Month.

The awarding ceremony was headed by Mayor Edwin D. Santiago together with SP Committee on Environment chairman Councilor Benedict Jasper Lagman, and was witnessed by CENRO chief Engr. Anele David and some barangay officials in the city.

The recipients who were subsidized includes HOAs in St. Augustine Village, Vista Rica Subdivision, Fiesta Homes, Greenville Subdivision, Alasas Village, North Breeze Subdivision, Avida Residences, Krystal Homes, Dela Paz Sur Village 2, San Isidro Village, Holy Angel Village Phase IV, Villa Isabel 3 Subdvision, EMS Barrio, Palermo/Felman Subdivion, Villa Lourdes, Florida Residences, Lourdes Heights Subdivision, Hacienda Royale, Roseville Heights Subdivision, and Sto. Domingo Village.

This move, according to CENRO chief Engr. Anele David, is in connection with the LGU’s 12 point agenda that includes environmental protection, “Malinis na kapaligiran, Fernandinong maka-kalikasan.”

She noted that, at present, there are 170 operational MRFs in San Fernando including those who operate in all barangays of the city.

The Ecological Solid Waste Management Act or Republic Act of 9003 orders all LGUs including component cities like the City of San Fernando to decentralize garbage collections.

“We aim to have at least 250 MRF in our city; this will be managed by private individuals with just a minimal supervision from our part” added David.

With this, the city’s capita spending for garbage dramatically decreased from P70 million to just P12 million pesos or just P12-17 each Fernandino.

For his part, the mayor urged the public to “become proactive in the combat against climate change.”

“Ang isa sa mga pinag-uusapan sa buong mundo ngayon ay ang climate change, at isa sa pinaka-mabisang paraan para labanan ito ay ang proper waste disposal.” “We cannot do this alone, we need your help.”

With the establishments of MRFs, the waste diversion in the city is pegged at 73%. “Sa tamang pagse-segregate ng basura, malaki ang matitipid ng Siyudad sa pagbabayad ng tipping fee. Ang mga natipid na pondong ito ay maaari ng gamitin sa mga programa para sa edukasyon, kalusugan, at marami pang iba.”

“Kung ikaw ay magtatapon ng basura sa tamang paraan, ikaw ay nakatulong upang makapag-aral ang isang batang kapos-palad, gumaling ang may sakit; ikaw ay makakatulong hindi lang sa kapaligiran, pati na rin sa iyong kapwa.”
