GARBAGE SEGREGATION - are you doing it?

Just last month, our city government ordered that all residences within our metropolis begin segregating garbage - that is, separate the biodegradable garbage to those which are non-biodegradable. The ordinance includes a NO segregation NO collection policy which I really find appropriate these days. I admire the fact that the city government came up with this idea even though it requires us to exert more effort in segregating, because garbage segregation helps in solving problems in waste management in highly-developed cities. How about you guys? Do you do garbage segregation at home? Does your city have a certain ordinance about garbage segregation too??

Wow! Impressive! I was in Cebu last September and i am very glad that the place was so neat. Amazing work you people have done. I go to work at Makati and i ride a small boat instead of walking the bridge from Mandaluyong to Makati. And eeeewwwrrr! The Pasig River is soooooo black and there is trash everywhere! It must be because of the dredging efforts of the government. Believe me... It is soooooo black compared to Cebu's sooooooo blue!

Well Cebu really is much less polluted. But if you think Cebu's neat, wait 'til you see Davao and General Santos. Waaaaaaaay cleaner.!

We do it here at home and do have the separate containers given to us by our city to separate all the trash. I have not heard anyone being penalized for not doing so but I do know that most in our neighborhood does separate all of it. It is definitely required in the building I live in.
