Quezon City Prohibits Open Burning of Garbage
image from http://woodheat.org/poison.htmlQuezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista signed into a law, an ordinance prohibiting QC residents from burning their garbage, trash or any other refuse materials.

Mayor Bautista said that it is about time for the city government to encourage the community dwellers to be part of the city's bid to protect the environment, to meet a balance and healthful ecology that will benefit all QC residents.

Ordinance No. 2022 S-2011, known as "Iwas Siga Ordinance of 2011" is intended to encourage the QC residents stop the habit of dumping and burning trash that they fail to dispose during the scheduled collections.

The ordinance authors are optimistic that avoiding the practice of burning trash will help minimize pollution and protect the health and safety of others.

Some residents are not aware of the health hazards brought about by the smoke from a burning pile of trash, which has become a common practice to get rid of uncollected garbage in spite of the existing laws against the dumping of rubbish.

Although the city government continuously provides its constituents with efficient waste garbage collection and disposal, with its regular collection thrice a week along secondary roads and daily at all primary roads, it is necessary that the city government must act to make them aware of the effects of pollution, caused by burning garbage, and what it can do to the body and the environment.

The measure has tasked the Environmental Protection and Waste Management Department (EPWMD) to deputize the Barangay Solid Waste Management Committees (BSWMC) in monitoring the progress of the implementation of the new ordinance.

The BSWMCs shall serve a warning notice to the first time violators within a grace period of one month. After the grace period, a penalty of P1, 000 will be imposed for a first offense, P2, 000 for the second offense, and P5, 000 and/or six months to one year of imprisonment, depending on the discretion of the court, for third offense.

If the offender is a juridical person, its manager, partner, proprietor, owner or other responsible officer shall serve the penalty of imprisonment.
