Reg’l Ecology Center drafts tool to measure SWM compliance
by Maria Aprila W. Cruz / PIA

The Regional Ecology Center (REC) in the Cordillera has drafted an auditing tool to measure the level of compliance of its member to solid waste management (SWM).

This is in line with the REC-Cordillera efforts to fulfill its mandates to be a hub of information and pool of experts in assisting the local government units on the improvement of their solid waste management system.

Fernie Sitsit of the Environmental Management Bureau-CAR presented the draft tool titled “Self-compliance Solid Waste Management Auditing Tool/Report” during the recent REC’s third quarter meeting.

The tool has five components, namely waste avoidance, waste reduction, waste segregation, waste recycling/diversion, and community involvement in SWM.

The tool was forwarded to all members to input comments and suggestions, before it will be presented to REC members during its fourth quarter meeting in October for approval.

Republic Act 9003 mandates the creation of the REC to assist LGUs in implementing the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 and in carrying out their related duties. Specifically, RECs are requested to serve as a platform for public participation from all sectors and for all aspects related to SWM to serve as a center for information, knowledge transfer, data processing and networking services.

REC has three committees: the environmental education and awareness committee chaired by Saint Louis University with Benguet State University as vice chair; LGU support and networking committee chaired by the National Economic Development Authority; and Technology Transfer and Public-Private Partnership Committee chaired by Department of Science and Technology with Department of Trade and Industry as vice chair.
