MMDA to teach kids ‘waste management’

The Metro Manila Development Authority will hold in Pasig City on Monday (Dec. 10) the “Kiddie Solid Waste Management Summit 2018” aimed to provide an avenue for students to enjoy while learning solid waste management and recycling.

“Teaching proper waste disposal can be fun and easy. We would like to cultivate a positive attitude among children towards the practice of solid waste management through activities we have prepared,” said Elsie Encarnacion, MMDA Solid Waste Management Office chief.

More than 500 Grade 3 to Grade 6 students coming from different schools in Metro Manila will assemble at the Pasig City Sports Center from 9 am to 4 pm in the event dubbed “Start ‘Em Young,” the one-day activity

To make proper waste disposal lessons more fun for the young generation, the summit will do away with the usual lectures.

Instead, booths and stations that will feature games and creative activities on eco bricking, anti-littering, shoot that waste, basura patrol, pledge wall, poster-making contest, dice the materials, erase waste, unscramble, bingo basura and buy back center where trash can be exchanged to different items.
