Phil Jesuits focus on waste management

1435296086Major Jesuit houses in the Philippines have begun setting up waste management activities aiming to make the houses environmental friendly. At the Loyola House of Studies (LHS), steel cages have been installed at the back of the kitchen to facilitate proper segregation of waste.

With the help and support of kitchen employees and scholastics, plastic and glass bottles, tin cans and cardboard boxes are now collected for recycling, and kitchen waste is now properly dumped into a compost pit. The waste management activities at LHS started at the end of December with the support of the Father Superior and other priests in the community, the scholastics and staff.
