During the fourth quarter meeting held at the Davidson Hotel on December 15, 2021, the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) announced that over 1,175 bricks from plastic bottles were produced in two months shredded a total of 8,315 kilograms of bottles.

As reported, from January to October, thousands of bottles were recycled to make bricks, resulting in a reduction in the use of wet cement. The above-mentioned cutting-edge product is employed in the construction of paths, houses, and other infrastructures.

According to CENRO Head Salud Lammawin,  the bricks are bringing segregation to a whole new level, and they are also reliable, as other manufacturers have demonstrated the materials to be four times stronger than ordinary hollow blocks.

Apparently, the city had accumulated 3,647 tons of leftover garbage from businesses, families, and public markets over the previous 11 months.

To help the City become greener and cleaner, CENRO advised the public to practice proper trash segregation and management.

The CLGU is a proponent of environmental safety as evidenced by the passage of Ordinance No. 3, Series of 2021, entitled “An Ordinance Regulating the Use of Cellophane and Sando Bags as Packaging Materials and the Utilization of Polystyrene, commonly known as Styrofoam, for Food and Beverage Containers in the City of Tabuk and prescribing Penalties for Violations.”

The ordinance will launch on Friday, December 17, 2021, giving businesses and households alike a 6 months moratorium to dispose of their cellophane, Styrofoam and sando bags use for packaging materials.

The winners of the Infomercial contests, the Search for the Best MRF, and the cleanest and greenest barangay will also be recognized at the launching. By Rio Bassong
