The Antipolo City government is able to collect almost 500 kilos of biowaste a week from the City Mall of Antipolo.

But the city government has also been able to process these and turn these into compost and soil conditioners, according to Mayor Andrea Ynares.

In a Facebook post, Ynares said that with the continued operation of the Materials Recovery Facility, the city has been able to process 125 kilos of biowaste a week.

The compost or soil conditions are then used for Antipolo’s greening activities such as the Barangay Community Garden/Plant & YES to Green program of Rizal province.

Fruit, vegetable, and fish waste are also turned into fermented fruit and plant juice and fish amino acids, she said,

“Heart sign ‘to kay Inang Kalikasan,” she said on Facebook.
