Baguio’s CLAYGO regulation is believed to foster discipline.

In order to encourage public discipline, a local law has been filed demanding the enforcement of a “clean as you go” (CLAYGO) policy in dining venues.

The owners, operators, and managers of restaurants, fast food chains, cafeterias, eateries, bakeries, coffee shops, canteens, food outlets, and all comparable food establishments and public eating places in the city will be required to initiate and institutionalize measures and initiatives.

Through the “clean as you go” approach, Datuin explained, “the same will demonstrate good manners and conduct through proper eating etiquette, hygiene, and the value of cleanliness by making it a habit of the people to take care of their litter and not just leave them where they ate.”

In accordance with the 2016 city environment code and the Baguio solid waste management regulation, the establishment will place signage and supply a minimum of three garbage bins for recyclable, biodegradable, and other waste.

However, the proposal exempts fine dining establishments that offer richer menus, a more formal or beautiful setting, and food handling services as a bonus to its patrons or dinners.

In addition to the CLAYGO practice, the ordinance will encourage common decency among customers and a cooperative effort between them and the staff of food establishments.

Datuin mentioned how “clean as you go” has long been a standard in all restaurants in other nations.

“This is not brand-new; it has been reported in several nations. This is what other nations have been doing). Some people are already engaging in it here in our city,” the councilor claimed.

He claimed that at canteens where management had full control over operations, diners were required to take their dishes to a designated area after meals, leaving the staff to clean or disinfect the tables.

“It is already (being) done in (certain) company canteens, even in schools and canteens and food outlets in hospitals, even in some malls,” he said.

Even in parks, according to Datuin, he has observed that visitors who bring food simply leave their trash where they sat rather than making an extra effort to clean up or pick up their waste.

“When it becomes automatic among us all to fix up and tidy as we go,” he remarked, “it is the discipline we are establishing and courtesy to the next users.”
