In celebration of the Zero Waste Month with the theme “Bouncing Back from the Pandemic to a Greener and Healthier Environment” the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Region IX through its Community Environment and Natural Resources (CENRO) of Siocon conducted a series of activities along the Baliguian mountain range on January 29, 2021.
CENRO Siocon conducted three activities, first was the “Pulot Basura” drive. Second was giving away IEC materials on R.A No. 9003 also known as the Ecological Solid Waste of 2000, and third was the installation of signages as a reminder on proper waste management.
All these efforts along with the continuous conduct of Information Education Communication (IEC) campaign, are in the pursuit of the Department to instill awareness on the importance and implementation of proper solid waste management to ensure protection of public health and the environment.
