Basura Mo, Sardinas Ko program: Expensive but effective solution to city’s trash problem
The “Basura Mo, Sardinas Ko” program of the Cebu City government is an expensive program, but it will address the city’s drainage problem.
Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmena said he sees the program as an effective way to solve the garbage problem.
The program encourages Cebu City residents to exchange a bagful of their garbage with one to two cans of sardines.
The pilot areas for the program are in Barangay Lahug and Cogon Pardo where there are sitios located near creeks that would often become the dumping areas of garbage of residents.
Osmena said he was hoping that the city would not have to clean the city’s rivers because the residents would be encouraged to collect their trash in exchange for canned goods.
Meanwhile, Osmena also blamed Team Rama-allied councilors for the city spending a lot of money on the disposal of its garbage.
Osmena said if the Inayawan Landfill had been opened then the city would have saved a lot of money.
