Training on Solid Waste Management and Technology: Best Available Technology and Best Environmental Practice (BAT/BEP) to Reduce the Emissions of Dioxins and Furans from Solid Waste

This capacity building activity is being conducted in partnership with EMB as part of the agency’s assistance to LGUs in complying with RA 9003.  This training will be conducted starting March until June 2017 in Legazpi City.  The venue shall be in Oriental Hotel, Legazpi City, Albay.

The training intends to equip participants with the tools and knowledge regarding safe closure and rehabilitation of disposal facilities, operation of sanitary landfills, and proper solid waste management in communities.  The training also aims to share lessons from local government units that are currently in different stages of preparation and implementation of their Action Plans that address the concern on open burning in local communities and in disposal sites.  The training also includes a site visit to a dumpsite facility undergoing closure.

This training is particularly useful to project engineers, environmental and social safeguard focal persons involved in solid waste management in their respective local government units (e.g., Environmental and Natural Resources Officer, solid waste management focal person).
