DENR 9 Distributes MRF Equipment 31 LGUs

Thirty One (31) Local Government Units of Zamboanga Peninsula were recipients of material recovery equipment given by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region IX thru the Environment Management Bureau (EMB) today at the Phil Coconut Authority in San Ramon, Zamboanga City.

 The MRF equipment were composed of 23 plastic shredders and 8 biodegradable shredders.

DENR Regional Executive Director Carlito M. Tuballa said that these equipment can assist the LGUs in dealing with their garbage problems.

"Plastics are slowly destroying our coastal and marine ecosystems being the final recipient of our garbage. It has even affected our fish. By utilizing this technology, we can convert these plastics into infrastructure materials."

RED Tuballa gave assurance to the different local chief executives and other LGU officials present during the turn-over ceremony that his office is always ready to provide them assistance in terms of protection and conservation of the environment and natural resources.

EMB RD Edgardo S. Callanta said that this assistance to the LGUs shall have a great impact to the implementation of RA 9003 as this can lessen the garbage in their locality.

Director Callanta added that it is now up to the LGUs to do their part in the sustainable management of their waste. He pointed out that segregation at source is the key for the success of the program. (rt)
