A Waste Analysis and Characterization Study (WACS) was conducted at Barangay Daga Ecological Park spearheaded by the Municipal Environment and Natural Resources (MENR) of Santa Barbara, Iloilo on October 14, 2014.
The purpose of the program is for operational awareness and knowledge on how to categorize solid waste accumulated by every household.
“The WACS will aid the development of material resources and energy using municipal solid waste,” said Ms. Remia Capistrano, an officer from MENR.
Being a progressive municipality, the MENR needs to study how much waste is being generated everyday by every Santa Barbaranhon.
Moreover, it reiterated the environmental significance of proper waste segregation as mandated by R.A. 9003 otherwise known as “Ecological Solid Waste Management Act.”
