LOS BAŇOS, Laguna – Confiscated logs and other forest products now find their way for safekeeping in the impounding facility inside the Camp General Macario Sakay in this town.

Lawyer Maria Paz G. Luna, Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Calabarzon Regional Executive Director, said Friday the seized items will be stored in a new impounding facility after DENR recently signed a Memorandum of Partnership (MOP) with the 4th Regional Community Defense Group (RCDG)-Army Reserve Command (ARESCOM).

Luna said their agreement, signed on Feb. 18 with the 4th RCDG – ARESCOM, provides an impounding facility for the DENR’s confiscated forest products and seedling replacements.

Col. Atanacio F. Sarzadilla signed the accord in behalf of the 4th RCDG-ARESCOM Group Commander. Laguna Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) chief, lawyer Ronilo L. Salac and Col. Dario C. Bucawit, deputy commander of 4th RCDG-ARESCOM served as witnesses.

“This partnership would redound to benefit the government on incurred savings since funds for the purchase of an additional facility will no longer be needed,” Luna said.

She also thanked the 4th RCDG- ARESCOM for providing a facility for safekeeping of all the confiscated forest products, including cut logs from Department Public Works and Highways road widening projects and seedling replacements from tree cutting permittees.

The new impounding facility inside the camp provides a more spacious site in addition to the region’s existing impounding facility which is now congested with forest products and conveyances, located at Barangay Bambang.

After the signing, the officials also inspected the new impounding site where the initial confiscated logs are stored. (PNA)

BAWAL MAGSUNOG NG BASURA!


Labag sa batas (RA 9003 at RA 9514) ang open burning ng solid waste, at kasama riyan ang agricultural waste, mga tuyong dahon at sanga. Nagdudulot ito ng polusyon sa hangin at panganib sa tao. Kaya maaaring ireklamo ang kapitbahay nanagsusunog ng basura, kahit pa tuyong dahon o dayami ang sinusunog. Ang inirereklamo ay maaaring maparusahan ng pagmumulta o/at pagkakakulong kapag napatunayang nagkasala.


Tumulong sa pagpigil sa mga nagsusunog ng basura. Sitahin, ireklamo, at turuan ang mga violators na sumunod sa batas pang-kalikasan. Narito ang mga maaaring gawin kung may napag-alamang nagsusunog ng basura sa inyong lugar:

Kung maaari ay i-dokumento (photo o/at bidyo) ang pagsusunog.

Kaagad tawagin ang atensyon at ipaalam sa nagsusunog ng basura na ito ay ipinagbabawal.

Kung hindi makinig at tuloy pa rin sa pagsusunog, humingi na ng tulong sa mga opisyal ng barangay. Itawag at kung maaari ay magsampa rin ng pormal na reklamo gamit ang complaint form na ito: OPEN BURNING COMPLAINT FORM.

Kung hindi umaksyon ang barangay ay maaari itong ireklamo sa DILG o/at DENR field offices.

Maaari ring dumulog sa pinakamalapit na Bureau of Fire Protection/City o Municipal Fire Marshal upang magsampa ng kasong administratibo sa ilalim ng IRR ng Revised Fire Code (RA 9514).

Kung di maaayos sa barangay, maaaring lumapit sa pinakamalapit na Tanggapan ng Tagausig (Prosecutor’s Office) upang magsampa ng kasong kriminal na paglabag sa umiiral na City/Municipal Ordinance patungkol sa solid waste management, at kaugnay sa RA 9003 at RA 9514. Gamitin ang complaint-affidavit na nasa link sa itaas.

Kung nais magsampa ng kasong sibil para sa danyos perwisyo (damages), kumonsulta sa abogado para sa paghahanda ng kaukulang reklamong isasampa korte.

Makatutulong kung ilalakip sa pormal na reklamo ang kopya ng mga larawan o/at bidyo ng pagsusunog para magsilbing ebidensya laban sa violator.

Maaari ring humingi ng tulong sa pinakamalapit na tanggapan ng DENR-Environmental Management Bureau.
