NegOr gets P7.6M in composting facilities

The Negros Oriental provincial government received eight composting facilities, worth P7.6 million, from the Department of Agriculture and the Bureau of Soil and Water Management.

The composting facilities for biodegradable waste were turned over to the local government units of Amlan, San Jose, Pamplona, Manjuyod, Zamboanguita, Dauin, Guihulngan, and Tanjay.

The equipment is funded under the DA’s high value crops development program and organic agriculture.

During the distribution, the mayors, who personally received the certificates of turnover, thanked DA for the project as it will help them address their primary problem on biodegradable waste.

Each composting facility has a rotary cultivator and a shredder amounting to P950,000 with a loading capacity of one ton or 1000 kg per load.

Agricultural program coordinating officer, Sarah Perocho, encouraged the LGUs to maximize the use of the composting facility to help solve their farm and household waste problems.

“We should take good care of this facility as this is a big help in maintaining the cleanliness of our surroundings and the environment,” Perocho said.

Guihulngan City Mayor Carlo Jorge Joan Reyes, who received the composting facility, said the equipment is timely as their city has an urban gardening program.

Reyes said the fertilizers they will produce through the facility can be used by their constituents in establishing home gardens.*PIA
