Material Recovery Facility - Solid Waste Management

posted Sep 5, 2015, 1:52 AM by Barangay Tortugas
In compliance with the Republic Act 9003, the Barangay Council proposed to have an MRF to which recyclables are stored and biodegradable materials convert to an organic fertilizer. This facility would help address issues regarding the proper waste disposal.
This is a better alternative to an open dumpsite because it seeks to be a disposing facility for the garbage, which is needed to be disposed right away to prevent unnecessary odor that bring bacteria and diseases once inhaled.

In connection with this, improvise composting tumbler is being done which can be rotated to mix the composting materials. This sealed container also helps contain the heat generated by the composting process, thereby speeding the process of converting kitchen and yard waste (biodegradable) into compost.

We are looking forward for the cooperation of everyone in sharing its vision of having an environment friendly community.
