He said that the lo­cal govern­ment is al­ready re­view­ing the schemes of other mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties which are adapt­able to their com­mu­nity.

"Isa sa mga tinit­ig­nan namin ay yung plano ng bayan ng Lubao dahil sila yung en­vi­ron­men­tal awardee ng Kapi­tolyo ni­tong nakaraang Pam­panga Day," he said.

He added that they have al­ready ori­ented res­i­dents, in­clud­ing those liv­ing in river­sides of the proper way of seg­re­gat­ing and dis­pos­ing their trash.

"As of now, la­hat ng barangays namin may work­ing na MRF (ma­te­ri­als re­cov­ery fa­cil­ity) kung saan pwede ni­lang i-sort muna yung ba­sura bago dal­hin sa municipal MRF namin sa San Vi­cente," he ex­plained.

Nu­com said that the lo­cal govern­ment al­ready signed a mem­o­ran­dum of agree­ment with the Metro Clark Waste Man­age­ment Cor­po­ra­tion which will pickup and dis­pose their waste.

He added that they have al­ready re­quested the man­age­ment to aug­ment an­other con­tainer trailer which will act as a re­serve when the other is up for dis­posal.

"La­hat ng mea­sures na pwede at adapt­able ay gi­na­gawa natin dahil ang solid waste ay isa din sa fo­cus ng at­ing Gov­er­nor Lilia Pineda," Nu­com sai d.
