ILOILO CITY -- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources here (DENR-6) is urging the public in Western Visayas to observe “National Zero Waste Month” this January.

DENR-6 regional director Jim O. Sampulna encouraged every individual in this region to be “waste conscience” in order to help achieve “trash-free environment.”

“There is a need for us to practice waste segregation at the source -- at the households, where the bulk of wastes are collected,” he said.

Sampulna specifically reminded the public to practice the three Rs: Reduce using materials that can harm the planet, re-use the plastics and other reusable materials, and recycle the trash.
“Filipinos have a creative mind, especially Ilonggos, I know you can do incredible things out of the trash”, he said.

He also urged the Iloilo City government to put in place a stricter policy in waste collection, so as to unload the sanitary landfill (SLF) in Barangay Calajuan in Mandurriao district.

Biodegradable waste, especially kitchen waste, can be composted.

Sampulna said there is still a need for the people in this region to be educated on the importance and benefits of waste management.

He said they are currently conducting massive information and education campaign (IEC) about ecological solid waste management particularly those from households and various establishments in the region.
Proclamation No. 760 declares every month of January as the “Zero-Waste Month”.

It is an advocacy that promotes the designing and managing of products and processes to avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials. It is also defined as a goal that is ethical, economical, efficient and visionary to guide people in having a resourceful lifestyle, in which discarded materials can be re-designed as resources for others to use.
Sampulna further urged the public to be waste conscious not only for this month but for the rest of the year. (PNA)

"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
