BALANGA CITY—Vice Mayor Vianca Venzon-Gozon has urged city folks to support the city’s on proper waste disposal program.
Mayor Francis Garcia and Gozon are prioritizing proper waste disposal in the city.
“When I was city councilor, it was under my committee on environment and solid waste management, so I ask you to help clean up the city and the preserve our environment,” Gozon told the recent Learning Barangay Week Program in Cupang Proper.
“I want to share this with you. Many know that I am using the old-fashioned, reusable diaper for my child. You should try going back to the old ways,” she shared.
“Based on my estimate I am saving about P25,000 a year using reusable diapers. More than that, commercial diapers take a very, very long time before totally decomposing,” the vice mayor said.
Environmentalists lament that commercial diapers take 250-500 years to decompose.
Proper waste disposal practices are included in the weeklong barangay program.
