• Bulacan governor gets support from EcoWaste


    An environmental watchdog supports the decision of Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino Sy- Alvarado in rejecting the dumping of Canadian garbage in the province. Aileen Lucero, EcoWaste Coalition coordinator, said Alvarado must convince the provincial council to pass a resolution banning the dumping of all types of garbage in any part of Bulacan that will come from any part of the country and outside the Philippines. She cited Section 16 of Republic Act 7160 or the Local Government Code, which states that, “every LGU (local government unit) shall exercise the powers…which are essential to the promotion of the general welfare.”
