Summary

“I

ts not my problem, it’s the government’s!” Such was the prevailing sentiment of residents of Linamon, a 5th class municipality in the province of Lanao del Norte when it came to the town’s garbage problem. Indiscriminate dumping of garbage in canals and vacant lots by sidewalk vendors, market stall owners and residents, as well as the unsanitary disposal of human and household wastes along coastal waters by migrants/slum dwellers were a common occurrence in Linamon from the 80s through the late 90s. Linamon thus gained notoriety for being one of the dirtiest municipalities in the province, incurring related revenue losses due to its misuse of public market stalls and slaughtering facilities, and its inefficient garbage collection. The problem also aggravated water and air pollution in the municipality and the declining productivity of municipal waters.

TURNING GARBAGE INTO GOLD The Basura Atras Linamon Abante sa Kalamboan (BALAK) Program

In 2001, these challenges prompted first-term Mayor Cherlito Macas, who was formerly Linamon’s Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator, to revive the Integrated Solid Waste Management Program (ISWMP). ISWMP was originally conceptualized in 1998 with the help of the USAID-ARD under their Governance and Local Democracy (GOLD) project.

Linamon, Lanao del Norte

Renaming it Basura Atras, Linamon Abante sa Kalamboan or BALAK, Macas adopted and strengthened GOLD’s ISWMP in order to make Linamon clean and beautiful with the adoption of sound environmental practices that included team building, participatory planning and law enforcement. The municipal government of Linamon launched an intensive information campaign It integrated a BALAK orientation in its pre-marriage counseling programs and business permit processing. It also established a sanitary landfill with facilities for recovery of recyclable wastes and the production of organic fertilizer. It assisted households and establishments in constructing mini compost pits converting biodegradable waste into soil conditioners for use in model farms. Implementation was enforced by penalizing residents for non-compliance.

“Turning Garbage Into Gold�

Two years after the full implementation of the program, ninety (90%) percent of the households and establishments are practicing garbage segregation and composting of biodegrables. This has drastically reduced the volume of garbage from 2,700 MT/year to 1,150MT. From 2001 to the first quarter of 2003, the program has generated revenues amounting to PhP 275,074.89. The program has also eased traffic flow and improved the general cleanliness of the central business district. Garbage has also become a source of income for the community.

BALAK Ecological Center

This feat has earned Linamon a Galing Pook award in 2002. It is also one of the most popular study tour destinations of LGUs and its experience is being replicated by many LGUs around the country.

About “Basura Atras Linamon Abante Sa Kalamboan” or Balak Project History: Taking off from a USAID-ARD GOLD Sponsored Program The Integrated Solid Waste Management Strategic Plan for Linamon was initially formulated in 1998 by the municipal government’s ISWM Task Force with technical assistance from the USAID-ARD, under its Governance and Local Democracy Project (GOLD). 1. Laying the Foundation for BALAK In 1998, the LGU, with assistance from ARD-GOLD, began developing its solid waste management program. It conducted capacity building activities for LGU personnel, enacted the municipal ISWM ordinance and created a task force. Capacity building activities included an ISWM orientation and the actual conduct by LGU personnel of a quick rapid appraisal of Linamon’s garbage problem to identify the needed facilities and services. By late February of 1998, the LGU created a Task Force on Solid Waste Management (by virtue of Administrative Order No. 02-24 series of 1998).. In the same administrative order, the preparatory plan for developing an ISWM program was laid out. The Municipal ISWM ordinance was enacted in 1998; salient provisions of the ordinance were posted in public places Capacity Building In the next 8 months, a series of capability building activities were conducted for the Task Force and other involved LGU personnel. Again under the GOLD project, LGU personnel attended workshops on the following: • • • • •

Strategic Planning and Facilitation Social Marketing (communication and advocacy) Mapping/re-routing of garbage collection ISWM Trainors Training. Study tour to successful ISWM in Luzon

Spreading the Word, Making it Known From August to December 1998, a team composed of members of the Sangguniang Bayan and municipal employees conducted advocacy and information campaign activities, including: teachers’ trainings on ISWM, distribution and public posting of information materials on the

program like newsletters, new updates , stickers, flyers and billboards highlighting the penal provisions of the ISWM ordinances and the importance of such a program. A ISWM orientation course was also integrated in the pre-marriage counseling services and the issuance of municipal permits (business, building/zoning). Barangays were also encouraged to install purok level clean-and-green activities during the Araw ng Linamon. Installing the Implementation Systems The next step was installing the necessary physical structures including the “Material, Composting/Demonstration Center/Pilot Farm.” To ensure the public’s compliance with the Municipal Sanitation Code and the ISWM Ordinances, the following structures for enforcement were set up: a) Operation DAKOP by Purok (covering all puroks). Law enforcers were deputized and distributed to the different puroks. They were tasked to issue a citation tickets to residents violating any provisions of the Sanitation Code and ISWM ordinances. b) Inspection of households and their compliance to the sanitary toilets and 1x1x1 compost pit requirement. This was conducted by a team headed by the Municipal Sanitary Health Officer. Exemption certificate was issued to households who had no space for a compost pit. c) Operation LINIS along municipal streets and canals. All municipal employees and officials including Barangay and Purok officials were assigned to clean particular areas of municipal streets and canals. d) Inspection of all PUJs and PUBs and their compliance to having trash receptacles. Municipal officials assisted the operation. Monitoring and Evaluation. Based on the strategic plan, monthly action plans and activity and accomplishment reports were regularly submitted by the Municipal Environment and Sanitation Office (MESO) to the Office of the Mayor. These were also presented to the ISWM Task Force and the People’s Congress which was represented by all sectors. A customer feedback survey was also conducted semi-annually and inputted in the MESO’s bi-annual Service Improvement Program.

2. Project Decline and Rebirth under a New Name But while the ISWM met with initial success, the project soon suffered from a change of leadership and dwindling people participation. When municipal development planning and development coordinator Cherlito Macas was voted mayor in 2001, he took the initiative of reviving and updating BALAK Ecological Center what he thought was an important LGU program. He created a Municipal Solid Waste Management Board and named the solid waste management program Basura Atras Linamon Abante sa Kalamboan (BALAK). Using the mandate of the municipal ordinance on Integrated Solid Waste Management enacted by the LGU in 1998, Mayor Macas issued an Executive Order institutionalizing BALAK as the umbrella program and implementing arm of the ISWM Program. Mayor Macas issued several executive orders mandating the strengthening of various structures and mechanisms necessary for its implementation. In July 2001, Mayor Cherlito Macas called for the renewal of deputation of all ISWM deputized enforcers. By the last quarter of 2001, ISWM, under its new name- BALAK was re-launched. Subsequent orders from the office of the Mayor and SB resolutions empowered the stakeholders and implementors of the program. By December of the same year, the Solid Waste Management Board was organized by virtue of Executive Order No. 12-18: An Order Creating the Municipal Solid Management Board. The Sangguniang Bayan also enacted and adopted ordinances and resolutions to provide legal basis for the use of areas and facilities of the municipality by the program as well as complement BALAK. In the last quarter of 2001, the Sangguniang Bayan of Linamon passed a resolution adopting Ordinance (No. 6, Series of 2001) Designating the Area Beside Linamon Public Market as Permanent Terminal for Public Utility. This would assist in clearing all major streets from traffic obstruction and sidewalk vendors. To fully implement Ordinance No. 6, two Memorandum Orders were issued to clear the national highway, provincial roads and municipal streets of sidewalk vendors. It was also the year when municipal-wide clean and green purok-level competitions were held for the first time.

Project Description: A Collective Approach to Solid Waste Management: The BALAK Equation Under its new name, BALAK pushed for participatory and collective approach in enhancing the ecological balance of the community. It had four main objectives, several key strategies and features; BALAK Objectives 1. Guide, control and regulate the generation, storage, collection, transportation and disposal of solid waste within the locality and promote order/sanitation for the same; 2. Enhance the total environment of the locality through the necessary control and mitigation of negative environment impacts of solid waste; 3. Promote and protect the health, safety, peace and convenience and general welfare of the inhabitants of the municipality; 4. Minimize the generation of solid waste but rather maximize its resource recovery/recycling and utilization. BALAK Key Strategies 1. Enhance LGU technical and program/project capability to advocate, plan and implement the BALAK project. 2. Mobilize and maintain a broad-based and active community support and participation to the project. 3. Establish and maintain the appropriate engineering and physical facilities to support project implementation. 4. Strengthen the ISWM policies and the mechanism and processes of policy enforcement BALAK had several interesting features including: 1. It called for garbage being sorted/segregated from source, and 2. that biogradeable waste be transformed into soil conditioners over a period of one month for use in model farms/gardens. 3. It also called for the full/strict implementation of the ISWM ordinance and other ordinances that affected the ecological balance of the municipality including the Market Code, Revenue Code, Traffic Code, Zoning Ordinance, the Health and Sanitation Code and other environmental laws,

4. It promoted other activities including Clean and Green program and oversaw Agri-Aqua Tourism Activities Sustainability Mechanisms The underlying strength and sustainability of the program is its partnership with community institutions and civilian volunteers. The Linamon ISWM Task Force created to lead the program was supported by a cadre of citizen volunteers who comprise the bulk of deputized ISWM enforcers. The LGU-citizens partnership has been institutionalized within the framework of the Municipal Solid Waste Management Board, a new local special body focused on the sustained implementation of the program. Inspired by the initial results of the program, some socio-civic and religious organizations like the Iglesia ni Kristo and the Alpha Theta Omega fraternity (Iligan and Linamon Chapter) launched their own clean-up drives as an integral element of their civic action program. Project Results: Balak to Bunga - From intentions to real benefits Within 15 months of the new mayor’s incumbency, the BALAK project made a significant difference in the town of Linamon so that it gained national recognition. The Balak project of Linamon became a Gawad Galing Pook Awardee. 1. Linamon now a PALACE To the people of Linamon, the program not only made possible a clean environment, it also generated economic opportunities. The benefits, according to the LGU of Linamon, are captured in the word “PALACE” which stands for: P articipatory Governance/People-Centered Development A lways Clean LGU/Awards (Galing Pook and Clean and Green Awards) L ess Diseases/Linamon becomes a Lakbay-Aral site A dditional Income to Farmers, Fisherfolks, Resort Operators, Junk Dealers, Women and Entrepreneurs C hange in Attitude/CASH…Competitive, Attitude, Skills, Habit in Waste Management E cological Soundness/Empowered People to enforce law together with LGU/Economic Enterprise out of Garbage 2. Greater Awareness of ISWM And indeed, “PALACE” has many tangible images in this town. Compared to two years ago, there is wide community awareness and acceptance of ISWM. It has become a way of life for many residents. Ninety (90%) percent of residents comply with garbage segregation

at source. There is 70% compliance with composting of bio-degradable waste in household backyards, and there are fewer houses without sanitary toilets in the five coastal barangays. 3. Less Congestion and Fewer Accidents There is less congestion in the public market area and a reported reduction in vehicular accidents. Even the central business district is now clean and orderly.

BALAK Ecological Center

4. Increase in Revenue Local revenue collection has also improved. From 2001 to the first quarter of 2003, the LGU generated PhP 191,891 from garbage collection fee, PhP 42,973.39 from penalties and PhP40,210 from environmental fee. Earning a Good Reputation, Setting an Example The municipality of Linamon has turned its reputation around, from being the dirtiest to being the cleanest municipality in Lanao Del Norte, not to mention a popular learning site for other LGUs.

REPLICATING BALAK Key Implementation Steps Based on the experience of Linamon, replication can be guided by the following key implementation steps: 1. Initiate the Preparatory Work for Setting up the Program: Initial Planning and Conceptualization • Conduct an Orientation Seminar on Integrated Solid Waste Management for key LGU Personnel who will be involved in the Program • Conduct a Quick Rapid Appraisal (QRA) to come up with a solid waste/garbage situationer (e.g, data on the magnitude and types of solid waste). • Create an initial task force on solid waste management that can take charge of preparatory activities • Develop an initial plan of action in relation to preparatory activities in development of ISWM.

pits or provide commodity assistance in the construction of water sealed toilets or communal comfort rooms for poor families The biggest expense goes to the setting up of the engineering and physical facilities, while the expense for capacity building can be reduced depending on the program that would be implemented by the local government unit. Expenses can be shared with the private sector; particularly the expenses on the following:

BALAK’s operations in one of the barangays

a) Construction and operation of backyard compost pits and provision of own portable garbage containers and supplies for garbage selection at source. b) Labor and other materials for the construction of water sealed toilets in the case of low income/poor households with no sanitary toilets. 7. Implement the Municipal Sanitation Code and ISWM Ordinances fully, which include: • Deputizing law enforcers who can issue citation tickets to residents violating provisions of the Sanitation Code and ISWM ordinances. • Conducting inspections of all households in relation to their compliance of sanitary toilets and 1x1x1 compost pit. • Assigning municipal employees and officials including Barangay and Purok officials to take charge of cleaning particular areas of municipal streets and canals. • Conducting inspection of all PUJs and PUBs as to the compliance on trash receptacles. Each team has their own schedule of day where they are going to conduct inspection in all PUJs and PUBs. Municipal officials assisted the operation. 8. Set up a monitoring and evaluation systems (e.g., monthly reports and customer feedback surveys) and monitor progress monthly and evaluate program
