YPDR will join recycling awareness and dumpsite rehabilitation project

YPDR is proud to announce that we will be working with TIGRA, Damgo, Mayor Chris Escario of Bantayan, and 40 local fisherfolk on a recycling awareness and dumpsite rehabilitation project at the Bantayan Municipal Dumpsite on June 4th and 5th.

Activities will include the rehabilitation of the segregation and storage bins, repair of the vermicomposting area, greenhouse rehabilitation, sign and labelling making,gathering of the recyclable materials from the dumpsite, as well as a bamboo clump rehabilitation and sustainable bamboo harvesting workshop and container gardening workshop.

The aim of this project is to rehabilitate the segregation and storage area for recyclable materials, raise awareness among international and local participants about the importance of segregation and recovery of recyclable materials through active participation in the dumpsite, raise awareness among international and local participants about the importance of recycling bio-degradable waste into compost for the container gardening project, raise the appreciation of the importance of waste in the post-disaster rehabilitation efforts, and involve the local waste pickers in the recycling movement.
