War on Waste, is really a WOW!

The War on Waste (WOW) Drive, a joint project of GMEC, Barangay Sisiman and Barangay BASECO Country initially was proposed by the Multipartite Monitoring Team (MMT) in 2017 and was adopted by ComRel in partnership with GMCP’s Environmental Team. WOW drive was officially launched last January 2019.


WOW drive supports and enhances the waste management scheme in each barangay in accordance with RA 9003 Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000.


In support, GMEC provides a one-day seminar workshop on Solid Waste Management and Alternative Livelihood from waste materials wherein residents, stakeholders and barangay leaders participated to learn the legal basis of waste reduction and recycling. 


In addition, GMEC turn overs Materials Recovery Equipment, trash bins and steel box frames to each Barangays to assist in achieving the program’s goal. A monitoring of monthly waste disposal, Information, Education, and Communication (IEC) campaigns, and Collection of Recyclables to generate income were few of the programs implemented.


Held last September 2022, GMEC provided the barangay with Kolong-kolong and Bajaj vehicles that the barangay can use to provide services to its constituents.
