• Baguio urges villages to enhance segregation, waste reduction


    BAGUIO CITY: Councilor Peter Fianza reiterated the city government’s call to enhance waste segregation and recycling or the reuse of non-biodegradable materials to reduce solid waste in the Summer Capital’s 128 barangay (villages). During a public consultation, Fianza said the city’s waste generation stands at 140 to 150 tons per day, and the city government pays P1,350 per ton of hauled and transported solid waste. He added that the city has no integrated solid waste management system yet and that the 10-year Solid Waste Management Plan approved by the Solid Waste Management Commission is up for revisit. Other matters presented during the public consultation include proposals on creating an executive-legislative task force for the newly enacted Environment Code of 2016; implementing programs for Balili River System Revitalization; conducting a search for cleanest and greenest barangay; formulating a framework to develop a Comprehensive Green City Action Plan; and reclassifying public lands.
