Implementation of Ecological Solid Waste Management Regulations
The ecological solid waste management program of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB) aims to ensure the protection of public health and the environment through a systematic, comprehensive and ecological waste management. The program is also expected to assist Local Government Units in implementing RA 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act particularly in the development of their 10-year Solid Waste Management Plan, Establishment of Materials Recovery Facilities, and an Environmentally Sound Disposal System. This program will contribute to target 12.5 which aims to substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.
