In line with the 20th Anniversary of the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 and the Zero Waste Month, the University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines (USTP) Jasaan participated in the Townwide Clean Up Drive with the theme “Bouncing Back from Pandemic to a Greener and Healthier Environment” last January 29, 2020.
The University’s faculty and staff headed by its administrators participated in the Clean Up Drive. Health protocols were observed as mandated by the IATF.
Equipped with broomsticks, dustpans, and garbage bags, the University’s faculty and staff cleaned the surrounding area of the campus. The collected wastes were then segregated according to the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000. Residual wastes were placed inside the garbage bags and biodegradable wastes were collected for decomposition.
