Escudero – “Step up Waste Management Campaign”

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Senator Chiz Escudero has applauded President Aquino’s mission to build a 100 km dike in Laguna de Bay as a solution to flooding there.  A lot of people are now living in basketball courts due to recent monsoon rains that wiped out their homes.  Chiz knew that this project of the President would take a long time as it could possibly carry over to the term of the next president which could be him if Chiz decides to run for the highest position in the country.  If he does then he does have a good chance of winning no matter who he decides to run with.  He suggest that ta chunk of the government’s budget should be used on the waste management campaign so the garbage on the streets should go to the proper places.  There are a lot of irresponsible people who just throw them wherever they wish. 

He pointed that there are still 27 percent of wastes that are everywhere and only 73 percent have been collected.  He is not really pointing the finger at anybody but he knows that every Filipino should do his or her job in keeping the country clean.  He pointed out that solid waste procedures should have been done a long time ago.  He knows it is long overdue and each Filipino should recognize that.  However, nothing can be done to those people who throw their trash anywhere they wish.  It just means they don’t care about the effects of their misdoings.  There are 5000 metric tons of wastes generated every single day in Metro Manila alone which means we are not really doing a good job of maintaining our environment clean.  It is a good thing the chairman of the senate committee on Environment and Natural Resources voiced out his opinion.  I wonder if the president heard him though.
