The Oro Kalimpyo Awards is a platform where barangays can both showcase their good practices at the same time synergize with different stakeholders. It is also an incentive mechanism strategy to encourage barangays to comply with the law to promote community participation in attaining a clean and healthy barangay. The project aims to search for the outstanding practices on ecological solid waste management and to give due recognition to barangays, groups and individuals who/which have an exemplary performance on solid waste management program.
The Oro Kalimpyo Awards aims to materialize the following objectives: (1) To ensure compliance of the barangay with the mandates of RA 9003. (2) To increase awareness on the importance and benefits of ESWM; and (3) To give appropriate recognition to model barangays with outstanding practices in ESWM.
