The head of the Iloilo Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) said on Friday…
Businesses in Davao City are required to develop a solid waste management plan.
As a condition for the issuing of a solid waste management certificate, the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) asked local business businesses on Monday to carefully draft their Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP).
According to CENRO Director Engr. Marivic Reyes in a radio interview, violating the SWMP will result in consequences for business owners.
Reyes stated that establishments must adhere to the system outlined in their SWMP, a copy of which will be stored by the CENRO as a reference for future inspections, citing the city’s Solid Waste Management Ordinance of 2009.
To ensure that only leftovers or unusable materials are collected by the CENRO, the plan must include segregation schematics, collection stations, the disposal timetable, and other waste management specifics.
“The solid waste management plan’s objective is to help people manage their garbage. The only significant prerequisite (to obtain the certificate, “Says Reyes.
She noted, however, that the certificate is only necessary when applying for new business permissions and is not necessary anymore when the permits are renewed.
She noted that in addition to the fine, businesses found to be in violation of their SWMP may need to reapply for another certificate.
Reyes claimed that due to the growing amount of trash being collected, the city is enforcing its responsible waste management policies even more strictly.
She stated that the key performance indicator for the city’s waste management program is maintaining the daily average volume of collected trash within the range of 600-700 tons.
