In support to the National Solid Waste Management Council (NSWMC), EMB Caraga posted on its Facebook Page (EMB Caraga) on June 9, 2021 the issued Resolution No. 1429, Series 2021, calling all government agencies to provide yellow bins in their respective premises.

With the current crisis brought by COVID-19, household healthcare wastes such as face masks and shields, and other related wastes or infectious wastes are being generated elsewhere.

The intention of this resolution is for government agencies to ensure the proper management of these types of wastes to prevent further spread and transmission of the virus and other diseases. The said bins will serve as temporary storage of said wastes. Agencies are enjoined to closely coordinate with the Local Government Unit in their respective locality for the final disposal of said wastes. ###
