City Mayor Joet Garcia has been vigorously promoting the city’s solid waste management program.

In fact, he initiated the establishment of city junk shop and barangay junk shops to further encourage local residents properly dispose wastes and even make money out of them.   According to Nerissa Mateo, city solid waste management officer, in particular, the “trash in exchange of school supplies” project was idea of City Councilor Vianca Venzon-Gozon.   

The lady councilor said she came out with the idea to encourage residents here to actively participate in the cleaning program of the city government.

The “trash in exchange of rice” was formally launched last month by Garcia at the opening of the barangay week program in Barangay Tenejero.   
The city government has also an existing program “trash in exchange of rice” to encourage family members in proper waste disposal especially now that living is very difficult.     

Venzon-Gozon cited that even cellophane bags can be piled in exchange of rice as covered by the program of the city government.

The lady councilor has urged all the residents here to support the solid waste management program of the city government.     

Venzon-Gozon, aside from the solid waste management program, is also full blast on city tourism program and empowerment of women and children.
