CAS Extension promotes trash in a bottle recycling technology

The average person unknowingly produces a half kilo of trash everyday. Without proper solid waste management and awareness, this practice collectively results to sanitary landfill problems and  further environment degradation. The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) thru the initiative of its extension coordinator Prof. Hilda L. Lorilla, is advocating the adoption of a solid waste management strategy called "Trash in a Bottle." It is an alternative recycling technology for unusable plastics and is one of the components of  the extension program "Rehabilitation Program of Dungon Creek Extension Program." Instead of discarding soda/juice and water bottles, one can use these PET bottles as mini trash receptacles. Dry, unusable plastic with no organic matter can be shredded or folded and then carefully inserted inside the PET bottle. The bottle should be full and compact. The bottle can then be used as a building material or any other alternative use.        

To kickstart this environmental project, CAS conducted a training last November 11, 2016 for urban barangays in Iloilo City namely San Vicente, Montinola, Magsaysay, Bolilao, and Our Lady of Lourdes. Another training was held in November 12, 2016 for Brgy. Bakhaw, Mandurriao and Brgys. Calubihan and Cuartero in Jaro. Both trainings were held at the Accreditation Room,Quezon Hall in West Visayas State University.

Serving as resource speaker was  Ms. Mitzi S. Pe├▒aflorida, Senior Environment Management Specialist and Provincial Solid Waste Management Coordinator of PENRO-LGU, Province of Iloilo.
