After enforcing proper solid waste management (SWM) within the various government offices of the local government of Tupi, the SWM task force now has focused its campaign outside of the government sites, this time at Tupi Public Market.
In a dialogue conducted last thursday, July 24, 2014, at Tupi public market, the SWM team in coordination with the market administrator and the public market vendors association has jointly discussed the present solid waste management program implementation within the market, and agreed to do some innovative approached and be responsible enough in disposing the market waste.
Among the agreements reached was for the vendors to segregate their wastes properly, and disposed the same at the designated collection point. Garbage collectorts will collect at the collection point and no longer at the individual stalls as previously practiced.
In the same meeting the vendors has committed to support the new scheme by signing a pledge of commitment. In monitoring the implementation of the same, the SWM task force will monitor the implementation of the same at the market.
In enforcing the same, the SWM task force will be issuing a citation tickets to those who failed to comply with the SWM laws.
And to those who had complied with the SWM ordinance, a certificate of compliant will be issued. All SWM compliant establishments shall be entitled to certain privilages to be determined by the municipal SWM board chaired by Mayor Reynaldo S. Tamayo, Jr. Among of the privileges are free advertisements of SWM compliant establishments online, posters, in meetings and pulong-pulongs.
