‘Waste seminar’ for biz owner required
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

The city council passed on first reading a proposed ordinance mandating all business owners, operators, or their authorized representatives in the city to attend a seminar on waste water management as a prerequisite for the issuance of business permits.

The proposed measure, authored by Councilor Lilia Farinas, designates the Zero Waste cluster of “The Baguio We Want” as the lead agency in conducting the seminar.

The entity is a citizens’ volunteer group working to promote waste management anchored on sustainable consumption, waste reduction, reuse and recycling, and waste diversion from landfills and incineration to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pressure on constrained natural resources.

Among the group’s duties are to determine and justify the required amount a business applicant has to pay for certificates, honoraria of speakers, and other expenses relative to the conduct of the seminar, subject to the city council’s approval.

It shall also conduct activities to ensure the seminar’s efficiency.

The proposed ordinance warns that applicants will not be issued business permits without the latest proof of their attendance in the seminar.

“The need for our communities, to be educated on the issue of waste and water management cannot be emphasized enough.  We need proper legislation and enforcement to ensure that local businesses are informed enough to adopt environmentally sound ways of managing their general waste,” it stated.
