CMP signs EO on waste management
The Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENARO), headed by Forester Tito A. Tanguilig, met with administrative officers and representatives from the different PLGU offices on June 13 at the PSWDO function room to discuss on the implementation of the Solid Waste Management Program (SWMP) of the provincial government.
This is in reference to the Executive Order No 52, series of 2018 issued by Governor Carlos M. Padilla on May 28 ordering the enhancement of the SWMP within the Capitol Compound, other offices, and hospitals under the direct control and supervision of the provincial government.
The provincial government prepared its 10-year SWMP governing all levels, including the Provincial Capitol, national agencies stationed therein, and hospitals controlled by the provincial government; in compliance with the provision of Republic Act 9003.
R.A. 9003 provides for ecological solid waste management, creates the necessary institution mechanism and incentives, declares certain acts prohibited, and provides penalties for violations thereof.
The reduction and segregation of solid waste within the jurisdiction of the PLGU shall be mandatory. The administrate officers of every office shall ensure proper waste segregation and submit a compliance report during its AOs regular meetings.
The PENARO shall be responsible in the conduct of spontaneous monitoring activity to ensure the compliance on waste segregation. The use of plastic straws, Styrofoam and other “throw-away” materials within the jurisdiction of the PLGU shall be discouraged.
All acts done in contrary to the provision of EO 52 shall be dealt with by pertinent provisions of laws, ordinances, rules and regulations. EO 52 shall be observed by the Heads of Offices, members of the ESWMP Committee, canteen/catering services managers, and the deputized enforcers (to properly enforce EO 52). #bg
