In order to ensure cleanliness and proper sanitation, the General Services Office of the local government is strictly implementing the “No Segregation, No Pick Up” Policy in the collection of garbage in the municipality.
“This is to strictly implement the waste segregation at source like segregation of biodegradable, non-biodegradable and hazardous waste,” explained Ms. T. Arlene Nufuar of the General Services Office.
The Policy according to her is in line with the institutionalization of the Miagao Action for Cleanliness (MAC) program which aims to sustain the implementation of activities for the health and well-being of every Miagaowanon.
Ms. Nufuar said that she has assigned eco-aides in barangays Ubos Ilawod, Ubos Ilaya, Tacas, Sapa, Bolho, Baybay Sur, Baybay Norte, and Brgy. Bagumbayan.
According to Ms. Nufuar, those that can be easily decomposed by natural agents and those materials which cannot be broken down or decomposed into the soil by natural agents should be separated at home. Only those that will be picked up are plastic materials, metal scraps, aluminum cans and bottles, and hazardous chemicals. These wastes will then be turned over to the MENRO Office for recycling.
