According to a study by Ecowaste Coalition, single-used campaign materials (such as tarpaulins) are increasing the amount of garbage created nationwide by 30% to 40% during election years.

To address this issue, the City Government of Manila through the Department of Public Services will be launching this initiative “Tarpaulin mo, ireresiklo ko” project to recycle these post campaign materials and decrease the volume of garbage going into our waterways and landfill.
