Mati boasts market compost center
By Mai Gevera

Davao City (31 October 2006) -- Mati's 1.5 ton of market waste daily produced from the public market is now converted to organic fertilizer as the local government unit structured a specialized compost center for market wastes.

Local officials commended the high compliance rate of market vendors in surrendering their daily garbage to the said compost center for cleaner surroundings and an additional government income from the by-product which is the organic fertilizer.

The vendors underwent series of trainings to absorb the proper procedure of composting from waste gathering from the surroundings to constant delivery to the compost center which is just a several meters away from the market.

Mati Vice Myor Cesar de Erio bared that this is the LGU's strategy of maintaining cleanliness and order in the public market, generating government income, and at the same time using it as a model for a wider scope of solid waste management program in the municipality.

"We are temporarily maximizing the vacant lot near the market to accommodate market wastes while the LGU is yet preparing the 15.2-hectare of landfill area at Sitio Tagbobolo," he said.

The bigger compost area is expected to start operation as soon as the newly-constructed Mati Public Market will open on December.

More wastes are expected with the bigger market that was why the LGU pushed for a wider compost area.

Meanwhile, the local government of Mati was recently awarded the Gawad Pangulo sa KAPALIGIRAN, ranked number one for its environmental programs.

Topping all the municipalities in the Davao Oriental Province, Mati is seen as having well-maintained greenbelt areas, laudable initiative in putting up a composting center, presence of a permanent dumping site, a well-maintained terminal, well-maintained mangrove area, and for the other environmental programs that the LGU strictly implemented.
