    Starting October 1, 2015, the City Government of Balanga (COB) will implement the City Ordinance No.15 series of 2010 otherwise known as No Segregation No Collection Policy in accordance with the Republic Act 9003.

    As cited in the Facebook page of COB, the No Segregation No Collection Policy will be strictly enforced. Recyclables should be handled by household or barangay material recovery facility (MRF)/ Junkshop ng Bayan. While the biodegradables or compostables should be handled by the household or barangay collection system. The barangay ‘buggy’ system will still be implemented.

    Only residuals and special wastes will be collected provided such wastes are placed in color-designated containers.

    Penalties for violations will be imposed accordingly.
