5th Recyclable Waste Fair slated on November

CITY OF KORONADAL — Preparations are underway for the holding of the 5th Recyclable Waste Fair this coming November 25 with the holding of Core Group Meeting recently led by the Provincial Environment Management Office (PEMO) among stakeholders.

Decided during the meeting is the conduct of activities such as Recy-Creativity and Recy-Cosplay contest which is open for elementary pupils and Recy-Composition Contest (Original Environment Song Composition) for high school students.

Only one entry for each LGU is allowed for each contest with priority given to the entry schools of the 2016 Search for Model Schools in Solid Waste Management.

Cash incentives will be awarded to the top 3 major winners and also consolation prizes for non-winners of the contests.

Aside from the holding of contests and formal opening program, buying and selling of recyclables will be the main business of the day.

PEMO plans to invite junk shop operators in Davao City who buy “e-wastes” such as mobile phone batteries, fluorescent lamps, junked computer hardware, among others.

Awarding of winners in the 2016 Search for Model Schools in Solid Waste Management will also be held as part of the Recyclable Waste Fair in the elementary and high school categories.

November is celebrated every year as Environmental Awareness Month, Clean Air Month and Climate Change Consciousness Week.

The Recyclable Waste Fair Core Group is composed of PEMO, SP Committee on Environment, PIO, PEO, DILG, DENR, DENR-EMB, PLLENRO, DepED City and Provincial Schools Divisions and South Cotabato Foundation Inc.
