Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Top Stories -

THE Mu­nic­i­pal En­vi­ron­ment and Nat­u­ral Re­sources Of­fi­cers (Men­ros) of var­i­ous mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of Misamis Ori­en­tal will be go­ing through solid waste man­age­ment train­ing, as part of the 10-year Eco­log­i­cal Solid Waste Man­age­ment Plan, on May 23 to 26.

Or­ga­nized by the Pro­vin­cial Gov­ern­ment and the Depart­ment of En­vi­ron­ment and Nat­u­ral Re­sources (DENR)-North­ern Min­danao, Pro­vin­cial In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Ni­cole Manag­banag said the three-day train­ing will con­sists of dis­cus­sions on pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment through proper garbage dis­posal and col­lec­tion in roads and bodies of wa­ter.

Manag­banag added that sev­eral com­pa­nies will also be pre­sent­ing their new tech­nolo­gies which can help solve the on­go­ing prob­lem of trash in the en­vi­ron­ment.

“Part of the train­ing sa (for) Menro, meron yung mga dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies na mag present ng kani­lang mga tech­nol­ogy, yung (there are dif­fer­ent com­pa­nies that will present their) al­ter­na­tive solid waste man­age­ment tech­nol­ogy,” Manag­banag said.

Ac­cord­ing to Manag­banag, a board meet­ing was con­ducted last Fri­day, April 13, wherein these al­ter­na­tive solid waste man­age­ment tech­nolo­gies were in­tro­duced by com­pa­nies such as the Li­amtech Com­pany and Mari­nas Tech­nolo­gies Inc., to the Pro­vin­cial Solid Waste Man­age­ment Board, chaired by Misamis Ori­en­tal Gover­nor Yevgeny Emano.

These tech­nolo­gies, she added, in­clude a biore­ac­tor, a ma­chine that ac­cel­er­ates the de­com­po­si­tion and sta­bi­liza­tion of waste and turn them into fer­til­izer.

At present, Manag­banag said the prov­ince al­ready has a tech­nol­ogy that can turn ki­los of cel­lo­phanes into chairs which, then, will be do­nated to schools, and other fa­cil­i­ties in need of chairs.

The pro­vin­cial in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer added that through the solid waste man­age­ment train­ing, the above men­tioned tech­nol­ogy will also be in­tro­duced and be adapted by the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties.

Manag­banag also men­tioned that a to­tal of P400,000 bud­get is al­lo­cated to the three-day train­ing; P300,000 from DENR-North­ern Min­danao, and P100,000 from the Pro­vin­cial Gov­ern­ment.

“Kin­ing (This) writeshop kun (or) de­lib­er­a­tion of 10-year Eco­log­i­cal Solid Man­age­ment Plan daku og ikata­bang alang sa pag­pa­dayon sa pro­grama sa pag-pro­te­hir sa ki­naiya­han, maoy hi­n­ung­dan nga su­por­tado gayud kaayo nato kini (is a huge help in our un­ceas­ing pro­gram to pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment, that’s why we sup­port this ac­tiv­ity),” Emano said.
