The City Government through the City Human Resource and Management Office (CHRMO) has launched “Project Notebook”, an initiative where City officials and employees are enjoined to recycle used books and notebooks for the benefit of the job order workers.

The project kicked off April 21 and will conclude on May 16.

As of yesterday, May 8, the CHRMO already collected 64 used notebooks and 77 old books through a donation box placed at the entrance of City Hall. Pencils and crayons are also accepted.

City Human Resource and Management Officer Dr. Jane Bascar said the initiative is in line with Mayor Beng Climaco’s priority agenda on education with the ultimate goal of giving the young generation a better future.

Specifically, the beneficiaries of the Project Notebook will be the job order employee and street sweepers with children of school age. The used books will be donated to the school children through the City Schools Division Office.

Under the project, each City Government employee is required to recycle used notebooks by removing unused sheets, compile and saw the pages together. For used books, City employees are to fix/repair the torn pages or cover. All these donations are to be dropped in a donation box located at the entrance of the City Hall main.

The CHRMO collects the donations every Friday. The project will culminate on May 16. — Francis Sadaya
