Use recycled materials for Christmas decors, City Hall urges residents

The City Hall on Monday encouraged the people and public schools to use recycled materials for decorations this Holiday Season, following their Christmas decor competition.


The City Hall on Monday encouraged local residents to follow the lead of city government employees who used recycled materials to decorate their offices for the Holiday Season.

This comes after the city government announced the winners of its Oplan Linis Christmas decoration contest which used recycled materials.

Offices located in the Old City Hall Building on the second floor topped the contest and won P100,000 as the prize for the overall winner.

Darleen May Labrador, administrative aide VI of the City Health Office, said they utilized used bottles from the past Subaraw Biodiversity Festival as their decorations.

“Plastic bottles po ang pinakamarami, pati ‘yong mga used vials na nilinis na sa laboratory, paper plates na tinatapon na iniipon namin namin ’yon, humingi kami ng mga plastic spoon and forks sa mga kakilala namin, pati mga tansans sa tindahan inipon namin,” Labrador said.

Offices on the second floor of the new green city hall won the P60,000 as the contest prize for the first runner-up.

Elisa Daquer, administrative officer III of the City Engineering Department, said the contest was a way for them to bond with their fellow city employees.

She said she recommends recycling for schools and households.

“Sabi ko ang sarap din nga kahit na sa mga schools, mga estudyante, mga apo ko, mga anak ko… kasi imbes na itatapon na, pupuwede pa nating magamit na bago maitapon uli, o kaya pupuwede pa ring isunod uli (gamitin ulit sa susunod),” Daquer said.

Five groups vied for the top prize based on the following criteria: 50 percent for set-up and another 50 percent for the use of recycled materials.

The judging of the decorations was conducted on November 22.
