Palit-Basura

A large amount of waste contributes to   a dirtier and more polluted environment. Improper waste management seems a major cause of it and may lead to serious problem if disregarded. Baliwag municipality’s strategy to combat this scenario is through Palit- Basura Store.

“Palit – Basura Store” may refer to a Basura Exchange Program wherein garbage are swapped for various goods/ loads per Barangays visited.   It could be a breakthrough program for the municipality as a part of its campaign to strengthen solid waste management and help Baliwagenyos turn their residual waste to something beneficial.

Fortunately, Baliwag is the first in Bulacan to implement this worthy program and looking forward for future livelihood undertakings with those amounts of waste collected.

Palit Basura Store aims to teach and encourage the residents to practice the proper waste segregation in exchange for valuable goods. It was the municipality’s means to reduce the waste in our town as well as other cities practice it too.
