Iloilo City strictly enforces "No Segregation, No Collection" policy

Iloilo City (30 October) -- It is a strict requirement now that garbage not appropriately segregated will not be collected in this city.

Mayor Jerry Trenas said besides this being in compliance with Republic Act 9003 or Solid Waste Management Act, the LGU has realized that the devastating effects of typhoon "Frank" in city was the result of poor solid waste management.

The city government has tapped a strong advocacy campaign from the socio-civic, religious, public and private sectors to make the public comply by way of consistently practicing waste segregation at source.

Mayor Trenas is urging households to segregate wastes as recyclables or those that can be passed to junkshops for extra income; those that are composted like the kitchen leftovers, and the dry waste that can be brought to the material recovery facilities in the barangays or in a collection point designated.

The city is asking the public to strictly follow rules for collection such as: the Green garbage truck will collect garbage placed either in a green bag or one that is tied with green knot, and the Yellow garbage truck will collect those in the yellow bag or tied with a yellow knot.

If these are not properly observed at the Barangay Collection point or MRF, the city's garbage trucks will no collect the garbage.

Calajunan Facility Manager Engr. Neil Ravena said different programs for compliance have already been seemingly exhausted, and what is needed now is the public's conscientious responsibility to take care of Mother Earth. (PIA6/ESS) [top]
