Cutting of the ceremonial ribbon

The Garbage Segregation Center was inaugurated last Saturday, October 19, 2013 with Rev. Fr. Rito, officiating in the ceremonial rites.

The project is a brainchild of the militant Anti-BAHA aggrupation of Bacolod City.

A major sponsor of this newly inaugurated facility is the D.C. Cruz family, represented by Philip and Ruby C. Cruz.

The Cruz family have allowed the Anti-Baha group to use 1,200 square meters of the Farmers Saturday Market along Magsaysay Avenue, Bacolod City.

Philip and Ruby C. Cruz together with Gensoli conceptualized and made into reality this facility which will also serve as training center on garbage segregation and how to effectively dispose garbage.
