LINGAYEN, Pangasinan – To further promote ecological solid waste management in the province, the Provincial Government of Pangasinan is launching a province-wide “Plastics for Goods” advocacy program dubbed Kalinisan Karaban on January 26 at the Capitol grounds near the Urduja House.

A brainchild project of Governor Amado I. Espino, III, the Kalinisan Karaban invites participants to collect plastic wastes, such as: pet bottles, shampoo sachets, sando bags, food wrappers, candy wrappers, Styrofoam and other plastic products in exchange for goods.

During Kalinisan Karaban Shopping Day set by the provincial government, accrued plastic wastes will be weighed in coordination with the barangay officials and members of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) and its corresponding monetary worth will be recorded on the ledger cards issued by the provincial government.

To claim goods and other incentives, participants only need to present their ledger cards to the established Kalinisan Karaban mobile store where grocery items, school supplies and other goods are stored.

General Services Officer Evan Gladish O. Domalanta said that this is in support to the Republic Act 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 which established the legal and technical framework for systematic, comprehensive and ecological solid waste management program.

More than the awaiting goods and incentives, Domalanta disclosed that this advocacy ignites one’s love and initiative to save Mother Nature through proper waste segregation.

As such, the provincial government, Domalanta added, plans to conduct Kalinisan Karaban four times in one month. Designated Kalinisan Karaban team will visit one town weekly to collect plastic waste items and in exchange of grocery items and other products.

Three municipalities and one city, including Bugallon, Bautista, Tayug and San Carlos City are selected as pilot areas to jumpstart this environment-friendly project.
