BAGUIO CITY – The city building and architecture office under Engr. NazitaBanez is requesting the public to chip in for the giant Christmas tree project by donating household scraps.
Architect Homer Soriano of the City Buildings and Architecture Office (CBAO) said they plan to fashion this year’s holiday tree from recycled materials out of household junks, like discarded pipes, broken appliances, scrap steel, metal, used tires.
Donations may be brought to the CBAO office at DPS barangay or call 442-2503. Arrangement for pickup may also be done for donations in bulk.
The recycled concept was hatched to help the city save on Christmas decoration costs.
Soriano said from last year’s allocation of more than P1 million pesos, this year’s design when executed will require less than P500,000.
A private architect designed the concept which the CBAO approved.
Using recycled materials also supports the city’s cleanliness and waste management programs.
