Emphasis has been placed on the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Composting, a sustainable waste management practice of converting organic waste into a usable product, provides a means of accomplishing all three of the R’s. This technique of waste management helps in reducing the amount of garbage sent to the landfill, and helps in reusing and recycling organic matter into a useful soil material.
During the initial house-to-house survey, only 25% of the total number of households practices composting.
In the pursuit of meeting the specific objective of increasing increase the number of households who practice composting to 50%, the group initiated a project entitled "Lakayan Ta, Paninduton Ta". As of October, coordination with the DENR was done for the planned barangay-wide health education campaign on November.
