Sustainable waste management is promoted via a new composting plant.

In Narvacan, Ilocos Sur, a new composting facility has opened to remove organic waste from landfills while also offering more jobs and economic prospects for the community.

The town composting plant in Barangay Sucoc, which was funded by the municipality of Narvacan, can process a ton of compost material in 24 hours and has a brand modern shredder that can handle two tons of organic waste each day.

Mayor-elect Pablito Sanidad said the composting facility will be of tremendous assistance to farmers because biodegradable wastes will be transformed into organic fertilizer in support of the government’s sustainable agriculture policy.

“Not only will the composting plant reduce the quantity of waste that ends up in sanitary landfills, but it will also convert the diverted wastes into valuable organic fertilizer,” he explained.

According to the National Solid Garbage Management Commission, about 52 percent of the country’s municipal waste is biodegradable.

Residents who comply with Republic Act 9003 or the Ecological Solid Trash Management Act passed in 2001 may no longer have concerns with solid waste if they have access to a composting facility.

Local governments must divert at least 25% of solid waste from landfills through reuse, recycling, composting, and other resource recovery efforts, according to the law.

The government’s attempts to manage solid waste and encourage organic farming using organic fertilizers are expected to be aided by the new composting plant.
