BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, March 1 (PIA) - The newly established Ecology Center in this province will not only help local government units in its Solid Waste Management Program (SWMP) but also opens opportunities for residents to earn additional income.

Forester Tito Tanguilig, Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENARO) chief said the Provincial Ecology Center (PEC) will cater to the province's LGUs in collecting solid waste materials for livelihood and income.

"The PEC will collect the solid waste materials from LGUs, especially those who cannot be sold in their respective communities and bring them to other agencies and organizations for sale," he said.

Tanguilig said the PEC was put-up to address the need to bring recyclable materials to various outlets.

He said they have already established linkages and partnerships with various solid waste management program outlets so that recyclable materials being denied by community outlets will be bought by other buyers.

"In this way, we can bring these solid waste materials to other outlets so that they can be sold for income and livelihood," Tanguilig added. (MDCT/BME/PIA 2-Nueva Vizcaya)
