Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc (DCCCI) president Simeon Marfori said recycling of garbage is what we need especially now that we are undergoing flooding problem in our midst.

The real battle starts from our households, Marfori said, adding that flooding is a symptom of a larger problem that should be addressed before it is too late for the city to cope up with.

He encouraged the public to take heed of their mindset and attitude with regards to segregation and proper waste disposal.

Marfori said this during the recently-concluded 8th Recyclable Collection Activity as part of the Environment month (June) celebration held at SM city car park (June 28).

DENR XI Regional Executive Director Calderon lauded both the DCCCI and SM City mall for another successful recycling event.

Director Calderon also stressed that a strong political will is needed to solve the environmental problem in the City.

The Recycling event is a collective effort being undertaken by both government and private entities to address the garbage problem in the city.

A signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was held participated by DCCCI president Simeon Marfori, Engr. Cesar Cachero representing SM City Davao, DENR RED Ricardo Calderon, Mabel Acosta representing Davao City, witnessed by Cora Baylon and Evelyn Laviņa.

The MOA signing has endorsed the renewal and continuation of the Recyclable Collection event for another year. Recycling event is being held every first Saturday of the month from 8:00am to 4:00pm at SM City Car Park. (DENR-XI/PIA) [top]
