Balanga, Bagac villages top DILG’s environmental audit
A barangay in Balanga City and another one in Bagac town were the best performers at the Barangay Environmental Compliance Audit (BECA) in Bataan province, according to the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).
The DILG announced the top barangays as Lote Puerto Rivas in Balanga City and San Antonio in Bagac town, a Philippine Information Agency report said.
DILG Provincial Director Myra Moral-Soriano said BECA is an initiative under the Manila Bay Clean-up, Preservation and Rehabilitation Program that grants economic incentives and assesses the compliance of barangays to the pertinent provisions of Republic Act 900, or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act.
According to the report, the indicators to determine the top performing barangays include existence of Barangay Solid Waste Management Committee (BSWMC), functionality of BSWMC, existence of the Barangay Solid Waste Management Action Plan/Program, and Barangay ordinance on “No Segregation, No Collection”.
The other criteria are the percentage of households that practice segregation, ordinance on the “No Littering”, and existence of a functional Barangay Material Recovery Facility.
