The City Government of Cagayan de Oro recently turned over an eco brick machine which will be used as livelihood by displaced scavengers of the now closed old dump site in Upper Dagong, Carmen.
The facility has a production capacity of 450 bricks per day using laminated plastics, sand and cement. The said project is in partnership with Nestle Philippines and Green Antz. Browse over photos below courtesy of City Information Office.
The former scavengers are now organized, engaged in waste recycling and now eco bricks making. Watch the process of eco brick making below.
