AC City Hall starts waste segregation

Angeles City Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. has issued Memorandum Order No. 588, Series of 2024, which put into motion the segregation of waste all over the city.

At the Angeles City Hall, all departments had already implemented waste segregation at source on Monday, March 11, 2024. 

Mayor Lazatin has directed the City Environment and Natural Resources Office to strictly monitor the implementation of waste segregation at source.

“This initiative reflects our commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible waste management practices,” according to Mayor Lazatin. 

Mayor Lazatin also noted the cooperation and support of the employees and city hall department heads and chief of offices to the said initiative. 

“I commend all our employees for their cooperation and dedication to making our city a cleaner and greener place to live. Together, let us continue to work towards a more sustainable future for generations to come,” said Mayor Lazatin.

In a series of meetings presided by Chief Adviser IC Calaguas, city hall departments were provided color-coded trash bins — white for non-biodegradable or dry use; black for biodegradable or wet use; and green for food waste, which will serve as an organic fertilizer supplementing the project of “Wow Langaw,” a black soldier fly technology that converts food waste into organic fertilizer.

Calaguas said segregating wastes at its origin will not only reduce the burden on landfills but also promote recycling and proper disposal of different types of waste. 

CENRO head Sendong Makabali explained there is a full deployment of CENRO personnel to check on the segregation per office. 

According to Makabali, there will be no collection, no segregation policy, as ordered by Mayor Lazatin in the premises of the City Hall.

“Ang bilin po ni Mayor Lazatin, siguraduhin na bawat opisina ay susunod at sumusunod sa ating waste segregation at source,” Makabali said. 

The working committee comprises Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel, City Environment and Natural Resources Officer-in-Charge Rosendo Makabali, General Services Officer Evangeline Malonzo, and Angeles City Economic Development and Investment Promotions Officer Irish Bonus-Llego.

It has been one of the flagship programs of Mayor Lazatin since he took office to implement environmental sustainable programs.
