Healthy Oceans Clean Cities Initiative (HOCCI)

Friday, 11 June, 2021

Under the Healthy Oceans Clean Cities Initiative (HOCCI) Project of UN-Habitat Philippines, the City Government of Legazpi through the Office of the City Environment and Natural Resources (OCENR) and the rest of the Technical Working Group (TWG) members has successfully completed the conduct of its Waste Analysis and Characterization Study (WACS) using the Waste Wise Cities Tool (WaCT) and National Solid Waste Management Commission (NSWMC) Guidelines.

Ninety (90) households and several controlled facilities were surveyed 12-26 April 2021 to establish the city’s municipal solid waste baseline data. The activity was remotely facilitated by UN-Habitat and a local hire from WasteAware assisted on-site to ensure the smooth and seamless flow of the WACS undertaking.
