The National Solid Waste Management Commission (NSWMC) is working to fast-track the approval process for the 10-year solid waste management plans (SWMPs) submitted by more than 1,600 cities and municipalities across the country.

NSWMC is the major agency tasked to oversee the implementation of Republic Act 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000, which requires each local government unit (LGU) to submit an SWMP that is being updated every 10 years. The commission is composed of various government agencies led by the DENR.

According to DENR Undersecretary for Solid Waste Management and LGU Concerns Benny Antiporda, only around 400 SWMPs were approved so far out of the more than 1,600 submitted by LGUs as early as 2014.    >> more
