Biodegradable waste management woes
PETER CHONG, Baguio City

Seven years ago I wrote the letter about the non-collection of “nabubulok” or biodegradable wastes. A year or so after that letter, the city government began collecting such waste.

Recently, we are back to the same scenario. There was momentarily non-collection of biodegradable waste. We are back to square one. In all these years, there seem to be no improvement in waste management.

How are people like me living in non-landed property going to dispose of our garbage that are nabubulok?

I am fortunate to be able to rely on my friend, Fred Fangonon, who is avid in eco-composting.
