Ban single-use plastics : recycling


CEBU, Philippines —  Close to 30 advocacy groups are calling on the Cebu City government to immediately ban single-use plastics and enforce a holistic approach in waste management to address the garbage problem and mitigate flooding.

The floods the city experienced last October 13 saw tons of garbage, mainly plastic bottles that have clogged up the waterways, along with the illegal structures on riverbanks and creeks.

Mayor Edgardo Labella said he would meet with the bottled water manufacturers to ask them to provide recycle bins for empty water bottles as well as come up with possible other solutions to solve the problem.
