Economic Advantages of Doing It Right:  Economic Advantages of Doing It Right Roberto B. Guevara Punong Barangay Barangay Sun Valley Paranaque City 1. Composting Makes 33% of Total Waste Evaporate:  1. Composting Makes 33% of Total Waste Evaporate City waste is 47% biodegradable. After composting, 70% evaporates as water vapor. This means that 3 of every 10 dump trucks will no longer be needed. 2. Compost Harvest is 14% of Total Waste :  2. Compost Harvest is 14% of Total Waste The remaining 30% (of the 47% bio waste) becomes compost harvest. This translates to about 14% of the total waste volume or 1.4 trucks for every 10 truckloads collected. 3. Factory Returnables Reduce Waste Volume by 28%:  3. Factory Returnables Reduce Waste Volume by 28% If the 46% non-bio waste is segregated at source, then about 60% of this can be sold thru junk shops. This can reduce total waste by 3 out of every 10 dump trucks. 4. Only 25% “Residuals” Should Go Beyond Barangay:  4. Only 25% “Residuals” Should Go Beyond Barangay If MRF is in place, only 25% of total waste should go to final disposal facility. We should need only 1 out of 4 trucks to transport residuals out of barangay. 5. Residual Management Made More Affordable:  5. Residual Management Made More Affordable Lesser volume of residuals for final disposal will need: less space, less infrastructure, simpler technology, less expense to the LGU. Even small LGUs can set up their facility. 6. Savings in truck hauling can be used for MRF system:  6. Savings in truck hauling can be used for MRF system City of Paranaque spends about P150M a year for hauling alone. A mere 25% reduction thru ESWM = P37.5M This can give P2.3M each to 16 barangays. This is more than enough to jumpstart ESWM in every bgy. 7. Barangay Control of Collection Schedule:  7. Barangay Control of Collection Schedule Use of small vehicles for collection makes it manageable, clean, silent and easy to maintain. Barangay exercises control over schedule and collection scheme. “Maaasahan si Kapitan.” 8. Efficient Recycling of Non-Bio Waste Creates Added Income:  8. Efficient Recycling of Non-Bio Waste Creates Added Income Basic redemption of factory returnables produce modest financial returns. Income is spread to the people. “Marami ang nakikinabang!” 9. ESWM Becomes a Business Proposition:  9. ESWM Becomes a Business Proposition There is profit in good waste management. Private entities can participate; not only government. There are many entry points for business resulting from good service. 10. Composting is the Beginning of Organic Agriculture:  10. Composting is the Beginning of Organic Agriculture Compost is a “soil conditioner” needed to heal anemic farmland. Healthy soil breeds antibodies to repel pests. Healthy soil becomes food source for the plants. Continued use of organics reduces need for artificial fertilization. 11. Home Gardening Produces Organic Food:  11. Home Gardening Produces Organic Food Composting produces abundant garden soil. Backyard gardening becomes source of healthy food. Indoor pot gardening becomes fashionable. Organic food is accessible to all. 12. Organics Can Develop Organic Pesticides:  12.

Disease Carriers Reduced:  13. Disease Carriers Reduced Less flies; Less mosquitoes; Less rats; Less cockroaches; Less diseases; Less epidemics; Less health victims; Less medical bills! 14. Cleaner Surroundings:  14. Cleaner Surroundings No more street litter. No more scattered garbage. No more “secret” dump sites. Cleanliness is automatic! Beautification is next! Investors follow! 15. Cleaner Air:  15. Cleaner Air Less air-borne bacteria due to decaying waste. No more foul odors. No more smoke caused by open burning. Better air quality. Better real estate. More business. 16. Cleaner Water:  16. Cleaner Water No more open dumps beside waterways. No more threats of leachate poisoning. No more water contamination. Creeks and rivers can be rehabilitated. Better water quality! Better fishing industry. 17. Environmental Awareness Leads to People Empowerment:  17. Environmental Awareness Leads to People Empowerment ESWM can mobilize once pathetic and indifferent residents. Communities can take on cleanliness and beautification projects. Local champions emerge for increased involvement in the barangay. 18. Foundation for Eco-Tourism:  18. Foundation for Eco-Tourism ESWM is a major component of eco-tourism. Reforestation, bio-remediation and coastal clean-ups follow. “Iyan ang hinahanap ng mga turista!” 19. DAGDAG - BOTO!:  19. DAGDAG - BOTO! A clean environment makes healthy people. Healthy people are happy. Happy people make a better community. A better community makes a true barangay. “Manghihinayang silang hindi ka iboto muli.” “Bawas gastos sa kampanya.” 20. Idol Ko Si Kap!:  20. Idol Ko Si Kap! “Totoo kang tao; hindi ka tra-po!” “Mamahalin ka ng taong bayan.” “Mahal ka lalo ng Diyos.” You have contributed to a better world for the next generation. Mabuhay ang Barangay!:  Mabuhay ang Barangay! Maraming Salamat Po. Roberto B. Guevara Punong Barangay
