Sights like the above photo are soar in the eyes. Service motor vehicles are parked everywhere even blocking the garbage bins and the facility for recyclable materials at the back of the municipal hall. LGU-Flora is embarking on proper and an effective ways to manage the town’s solid waste which must involve all sectors of the community.
Proper waste disposal he said should start from the household.

HRMO Cathy Ortega advised those eating inside the office to make sure that the kitchen utensils nd plastics will be properly washed and disposed off.
The Mayor said the law on solid management segregation (R.A. 9003) should be observed at all times and advise everybody to practice the Reuse and Recycle ways and “that should start within the office and our houses.”
Vice Mayor Jessica De San Jose suggested that the garbage collectors should schedule a collection time for biodegradable and non-biodegradable materials.
On August 15, the Sangguniang Bayan unanimously voted for the approval and adoption of the 10-year Solid Waste Management Plan (2016-2025).
The comprehensive 10-year plan was discussed during a meeting with all stakeholders later on the same day.
