As we continue our effort in boosting our solid waste management program, the Provincial Government of Benguet headed by Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas is blessed to receive a set of plastic recycling equipment with plastic chair molds machine from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The P6.55M facility was turned over by DENR-CAR Director Ma Victoria Abrera last Dec. 15 in Wangal, La Trinidad, Benguet.This equipment can produce a chair made out of plastic cellophanes. Once operational, it will be a huge help for our province as we pursue to address our problems on solid wastes.
Driven by its mission: Ensure Improvement of Quality of Life in Benguet, the Province of Benguet obtained a human development index of 0.883 in 2009. The province of Benguet promises its constituents high age expectancy, accessible high caliber education and more than sufficient way of living. This, however, can't be achieved without the help of its people.
The cultural beliefs and innate characteristics of the people made it possible for them to strive and develop higher quality of life without destroying the cradle that they live in.
