Harmful practice! Roman releases advisory vs burning garbage
Bataan Rep. Geraldine Roman has urged the public to be more conscientious of their waste disposal activities.
On a Facebook advisory, the politiko warned that burning trash, including dried leaves, could leave harmful effects on the environment.
“Marami ang hindi nakakaalam nito kung kaya’t ang ating gobyerno ay gumagawa ng iba’t ibang pamamaraan upang umabot ito sa mga ordinaryong mamamayan,” she said.
While the practice of “pagsisiga” or or burning as a way of disposing garbage such as leaves or wood has been a major practice in Filipino households, Roman said the public should know that it contributes to pollution, that could in turn harm our health.
