More than 10,000 Atimonan homes get OK for practicing waste segregation
Some 10,000 residents of Atimonan have shown that they are helping the environment by segregating their garbage.
The Atimonan public relations and information office said 10,093 homes or 69 percent of those inspected by the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office qualified for the Project OK Sticker.
The sticker is given to residences that are able to prove that they properly segregate their trash.
The Oplan Kalinisan or Project OK sa Tahanan was conceptualized in 2019 and implemented the following year.
This is part of the local government’s goal of putting order to waste collection in town, it said.
Barangays, schools, and homes that participate in the project would get incentives, it said.
“Bahagi ng konsepto ng Project OK ang pagkakaloob ng insentibo sa mga barangay at paaralan na mayroong mataas na puntos sa isinagawang evaluation ng MENRO. Bukod dito ay ang pagkakaroon nga ng Project OK Sticker ng mga tahanang napatunayang tumatalima sa tamang pagbubukod-bukod ng basura,” it said.
