As part of the Commitment of GTIS Group Management to comply with Republic Act 9003 (Ecological Solid Waste Management Act) and Implemented Rules and Regulations, the Company has defined a “Goal ZERO Waste” Objective.
Waste Segregation is a key criterion of this journey
- Biodegradable Waste – e.g. food waste, farming/garden waste and animal waste
- Recyclable Waste refer to any waste material retrieved from the waste and free from contamination that can still be converted into suitable beneficial use
- on-Traditional Recyclables e.g. empty ink and toner cartridges, broken electrical and electronic equipment and appliances, obsolete computers, car tires.
- Special Waste e.g. paints, thinner, batteries, lead-acid batteries, spray canisters, bulky waste, consumer electronics, oil, tires
- Residuals Waste are solid waste materials, non-biodegradable and non-recyclable, e.g. worn-out rags, ceramics, wrappers/sachets, cartons which contain a plastic lining, etc.
GTIS Group has set up the required waste segregation processes, and our Pollution Control Officers (PCO) trained as per regulatory requirements, are continuously rolling out appropriate training to all our employees and leading programs to help GTIS completing this ambitious and permanent journey to our GREENS Program.
