CEBU CITY, April 5 – The Cebu City government is seeking the help of some 137 homeowners’ groups in the city for the strict implementation of the “no segregation, no collection” policy.

Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama is also asking the help of churches and parishes in encouraging their followers to segregate their wastes.

Rama ordered the strict implementation of the "no segregation, no collection" of garbage ordinance starting April.

Garbage trucks carrying unsegregated garbage, he said, will not be allowed entry to the city's Inayawan sanitary landfill.

Rama said the enforcement of the waste segregation ordinance of the city has not yet been fully implemented, considering that unsegregated wastes can still be seen in some of the city’s villages.

”So, we should all be connecting to be able to achieve our goal and see substantial positive results,” he said.

Rama said he will be imposing “absolute sanctions” to the barangays who will be found not implementing his order after a month.

”There is an observation period. Let’s see what the sanctions will be since we have to consider the stubbornness of some people,” he said. (PNA)
