CEMO Helps La Carlota City with Regulated Plastic Use Implementation

MARCH 20, 2023

The City Environment Management Office (CEMO) of San Carlos City assisted the representatives of the La Carlota City Market Enforcement Team and Public Information Office (PIO) during their benchmarking on regulated plastic use, today, March 20.
Among the topics Engr. Loreto Sanchez, City Environment and Natural Resources Officer I, and Engr. Arthur Batomalaque, Integrated Waste Management/Pollution Control Division discussed were the background of the city’s environmental ordinance on the regulation of single-use plastics, the impact of the implementation, Galing Pook Awards, plan for landfill per cluster barangay, site development plan and improvement of Eco-Center.

Carmela C. Valencia, LGU-La Carlota City PIO said the benchmarking aimed at gathering more information as preparation for the implementation of their City Ordinance No. 2022-006 that regulates and phases out the use of single-use plastic, cellophane, sando bags, and styrofoams as packaging materials.
Valencia added they chose San Carlos City as their subject of study since it is a model city in Negros Occidental where programs for the environment and the contribution of the people in the success of the program inspired them.
Valencia also thanked City Mayor Renato Y. Gustilo, Engr. Sanchez and Engr. Batomalaque for accommodating them and providing a great example and knowledge among other LGUs.
La Carlota City will start implementing the regulated single-use plastic policy in May 2023 during the weekends only for 6 months, after which a 3-day no-use of plastic will be implemented.
La Carlota City aimed at banning the use of plastic by 2025.
