The municipality of Libmanan in Camarines Sur collects some 1,400 kilos of waste daily from 75 barangays. This sheer volume of trash has prompted the municipal government to find better ways of addressing the town’s solid waste.

Alma Bella Prado, the municipal environment and natural resources officer of Libmanan, expressed her observation that the materials recovery facility (MRF) needed additional capacity and technologies to process and recycle the waste, which barangay MRFs could not provide.
