Punzalan gives lecture on garbage problem

“By not being part of the problem, we become part of the solution.”

This was the message of Dr. Eric Punzalan, director of the Center for Natural Sciences and Environmental Research (CENSER) in his lecture on garbage problem held at the Angeles University Foundation, Pampanga.

Punzalan stressed to the faculty and students of the College of Health and Sciences that the problem of waste disposal becomes doubly difficult because its solution requires “collective effort” from the citizenry. Everyone is a stakeholder and the solution should not only come from the authorities.

In his lecture, Punzalan recommended that the University adopt the policy of recycling and reusing consumer products. He urged them to sort the garbage properly—the biodegradable from the non-biodegradable. The process, from segregation to decomposition, should reduce the collected mass of waste by at least 60 percent.
