Manila Mayor Maria Sheilah "Honey" Lacuna-Pangan is joined by Department of Public Services OIC Kayle Nicole Amurao.

The material recovery facility has a DOST-ITDI developed bioreactor, biocomposer, and two units of biodegradable waste shredder, all of which were donated by DENR-EMB-NCR and DOST-NCR.

On her message of support, Mayor Honey Lacuna expressed the importance of the recovery facility built inside the Manila Zoo.


"Ito pong material recovery facility ay isinasagawa natin para po sa patuloy na pagrerecycle natin at magawa po nating mas kapaki-pakinabang muli ang ilang bagay na sa tingin po natin ay wala ng silbi," she said.

The MRF is capable of processing biodegradable waste, recyclable waste, and residual with potential into items which may be upcycled into items for livelihood or for reuse.

Byproducts made by the "Tarpaulin mo, Ireresiklo ko" project are usable items such as eco bags, fans, pouches, and other household items which may be used at home or given as a gift.

Soil conditioner or fertilizer is the byproduct of a combination of animal manure from Manila Zoo, dried leaves from those collected on the streets, and leftover vegetables collected in Divisoria.

The soil conditioners are distributed in various organizations and may also be bought by common consumers for 10 pesos per kilogram.

Those who want to order in bulk may also contact the DPS Operations Division at 5310-1261.

A total of 29,806 kilograms of biodegradable wastes have been processed by the bioreactor since January 24, while 15,384 kilograms in total for the biocomposter since April 11 of this year.
