Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista (third from right) and Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte (fourth from left) receive trash bins from Handyman headed by its General Manager, Stanley Co, and RRHI VP for Procurement Mark Tansiongkun, as they are joined by select city councilors and Handyman and EPWMD representatives during the ceremonial turnover at Quezon City Hall.
In an effort to further promote a cleaner environment and discipline among the youth, Handyman donated 180 sets of segregation trash bins to all public elementary and high schools located in Quezon City. Totaling 540 individual bins, each set is composed of three segregation bins labeled accordingly to isolate paper, recyclable non-biodegradables, and residual wastes. The ceremonial turnover was held at the Quezon City Hall last November 20, 2017.
Fun and colorfully-designed, the bins are intended to encourage young children to be mindful of the differences in wastes and the value of reducing negative environmental impacts. The initiative was part of utilizing the green fund from Quezon City’s Plastic Recovery System Fee, where Handyman partnered with the local government’s Environmental Protection and Waste Management Department (EPWMD) to raise awareness on proper garbage disposal and the importance of recycling.
