- Stu­dents from the Univer­sity of the As­sump­tion (UA) re­cently vol­un­teered to dec­o­rate the mu­nic­i­pal ma­te­ri­als re­cov­ery fa­cil­ity (MRF) at Si­tio Bebe Ara­bia here.

Ac­cord­ing to Mayor Danilo Guintu, the stu­dents vol­un­teered to de­sign the con­crete fence of the MRF as part of their com­mu­nity out­reach pro­gram.

He said that the stu­dent-artists painted dif­fer­ent col­or­ful eco­log­i­cal mu­rals to urge the pub­lic to pre­serve na­ture through proper waste seg­re­ga­tion.

"Ka­pag sin­abing MRF, da­pat hindi lang ba­sura yan. Pi­na­ganda namin para ma-en­cour­age ang mga kababayan natin na mag-seg­re­gate at

ayusin ang mga ba­sura nila kasi yung paglalagyan, maayos at ma­li­nis," he said.

The mayor ex­tended his grat­i­tude to the stu­dents and ad­min­is­tra­tion of the univer­sity for their ini­tia­tive to help the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

He also cited the other or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­di­vid­u­als who par­tic­i­pated in the ac­tiv­ity in­clud­ing per­son­nel of the Gen­eral Ser­vices Of­fice, stu­dents of Tarik Suli­man High School and res­i­dents.

Mean­while, Guintu dis­closed that the Depart­ment of En­vi­ron­ment and Nat­u­ral Re­sources awarded some P5-mil­lion funds to re­ha­bil­i­tate the said MRF.

He said that the bud­get will be al­lo­cated for the up­grad­ing of the con­crete fence and im­prove­ment of its top­ping.
