Section 22 and Section 32 of RA 9003 requires that there shall be separate container, which are properly labeled for each type of waste from all sources and that there shall be established Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) in every barangay or cluster of barangays, respectively.
During the initial house-to-house survey, there were no available and accessible trash bins in public areas (barangay hall, school ,sari-sari store) of the Barangay observed. Moreover, the Barangay also has no Materials Recovery Facility established.
The group, thus, envisioned to decrease the number of households who do not practice waste segregation from 75% to 25%.in Barangay Goaw, Liloy, Zamboanga Del Norte by the year 2017. To solve this pressing problem, the following activities were done
After only two months, four trash bins were turned over to the barangay. Also, one modified MRF was added per purok making a total of 8 modified MRFs. That did not end there. During the Municipality-wide Clean and Green Competition this August, Barangay Goaw was deemed as “The Barangay with the Most Functional MRF.”
