Waste Segregation Program implemented in Brgy. 88 San Jose

Waste Segregation Program implemented in Brgy. 88 San Jose

TACLOBAN CITY –  Residents of Brgy. 88 in San Jose, Tacloban City, are now required to segregate their waste as part of a pilot implementation of the Solid Waste Management program by the local government. The initiative aims to improve waste collection in the area and contribute to environmental cleanliness, according to Brgy. 88 Chairman Emelita S. Montalban.

The chairman noted that waste segregation is a positive step towards a cleaner community and can effectively produce organic fertilizer for plants. However, some residents are still struggling to comply with the policy, prompting the barangay to educate and remind its residents to properly segregate their waste.

Chairman Montalban suggested that waste collection should be done house-to-house instead of using pick-up points to identify households that are not properly segregating their garbage. This way, they can be penalized accordingly.

On the other hand, another problem that the barangay officials encountered is the improper garbage disposal in their area, particularly in the corner of Sitio Baloc, where the barangay has installed a trash container. Instead of properly disposing of their waste, some residents leave it scattered around the container or feed it to stray animals. 

The barangay officials plan to install CCTV cameras in the area to monitor and ensure proper waste disposal.

Brgy. 88 is one of the 14 barangays in Area 3, including 79, 81, 82, 83, 83-B, 83-C, 84, 85, 86, 87, 89, 90, that started implementing waste segregation last February 10. Under the program collects biodegradable waste every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, recyclable waste on Tuesdays, and residual waste on Thursdays.

The implementation of waste segregation in Brgy. 88 is a significant step towards a cleaner and greener community. The local government, together with the barangay officials, encourages everyone to do their part in properly segregating their waste to help minimize waste and contribute to a cleaner environment. —iTacloban (Source: CIO)
