TEN YEAR ECOLOGICAL SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PLAN OF

BARANGAY _______________ MUNICIPALITY OF _______________________

I. Executive Summary [This is the first part of the written plan and is the first to appear in the plan but the last to be written because it presents the gist or the highlights of your plan. What to be written in this part should only be a brief description of the barangay profile, solid waste profile, your most important strategies and funding requirements. An example is shown below. You can add some more but should not exceed 1 page short bond single space] This ten year ecological solid waste management plan for Barangay ____________ of the municipality/city of ____________ hopes to achieve an almost zero waste after 10 years of implementation of the plan. Our barangay covers an area of ____________hectares, with total population of ____________ and number of households of__________, ________Day Care and Elementary schools, __________ Commercial Establishments/Market,and ______ hospitals/clinics. With the existing barangay profile and solid waste generation , the Barangay officials and the constituents will work hand in hand to reduce at source, recycle, and process waste into compost product. All waste generators will be involved in managing the waste in the Barangay through a widespread education and public information. Organized groups in the Barangay like _________________, _______________________ will be tapped. Assistance of non-government organizations that are concerned with ecological management like ________________will also be sought. Bioman shall be assigned in every barangay to handle collection of segregated wastes and incentive programs like ______________ will be in place. The first year budget will require ____________________ a portion of which (initial operating expense) in the amount of __________ shall be allocated from the present funds and the remaining portion shall be sourced from other sources. Yearly requirements will be included in succeeding budget proposals. II. Rationale [This part of the plan tells the users and readers of the plan the reasons why there is a need for the plan. A short backgrounder for the pressing situation and for protected problems that go along the present situation should first be included. Legal mandates should also be presented. An example is presented below. You

can add or modify. Be sure that the salient reasons for planning should be clearly stated] Solid waste management has become a very serious concern for a lot of communities. Rapid population growth, economic expansion, and the growing throw away lifestyle of consumers, result in a continually increasing solid waste generation and putting pressure on the Local Government Units to expand their waste collection and disposal program. Section 10 of Republic Act 9003 emphasizes the vital role of the barangay in the successful implementation of the program on solid waste management, particularly in the segregation, collection, and recycling of waste at source. In view of this, the Barangay Solid Waste Management Committee, established through an ordinance by the Barangay Council is tasked to formulate a community solid waste management program consistent with that of the city/municipality. Likewise, the Secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government through the DILG Memorandum Circular No. 2001-38 dated April 10, 2001, directed all Local Chief Executives (LCE) to conduct an information campaign on R.A. 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000, as well as provide the necessary incentives to the best LGU performer on solid waste management. The Barangay is the best government unit to reach the households in this information dissemination campaign and in empowering everybody to manage waste properly. Further, by virtue of EO 774, Section 2 (a), all local governments are enjoined to reduce solid waste generation by fifty percent (50%) within the next six months, June 2010. The above reasons, not to mention the necessity of really having a good plan to have proper directions and sustainability of development, this plan on solid waste management of Barangay ___________________ was prepared.

And for the effective implementation of the program our Barangay will organize its own IEC Team and this will be trained to have common language in the dissemination of information on a house to house level. Flyers will be developed and reproduced for distribution to household and all other sources of wastes. The ecological center that you propose will help you out carry this part of your plan. Education and Public Information [Describe what you will do to have a massive information campaign regarding solid waste management] Information.[Describe what you intend to do on waste diversion. E.
