Clarin officials defend town’s Solid Waste Management Plan before NSWMC

Clarin Vice Mayor Allen Rey Piezas and the rest of the Sangguniang Bayan (SB) were able to defend the town’s 10-year Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP) before the National Solid Waste Management Council (NSWMC) in a virtual meeting on Thursday, June 3, 2021.

Piezas said that the defense before the NSWMC is needed as mandated by Republic Act 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000.

RA 9003 stipulates the segregation of collected garbage at source as local government units (LGU) are allowed only to collect the residual and special waste from businesses and households.

He said that LGUs need to put up residual containment facilities and each barangay should have a materials recovery facility.

Piezas said that Clarin Mayor Eugene Ibarra, Councilor Christine Butal, Ecological Solid Waste Management (ESWM) Coordinator Dante Cañete, ESWM focal person Kathleen Lebita, and Gleyn Bojos were present during the said activity at the SB session hall of Clarin.
