In support of the National Framework Plan for the Informal Sector in Solid Waste Management adopted by the National Solid Waste Management Commission (NSWMC) in 2010, the Solid Waste Management Association of the Philippines (SWAPP), DENR-EMB/NSWMC, League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) and League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP), in partnership with the City Government of Legazpi City, are organizing SWAPPCon 2013 - “MAINSTREAMING THE INFORMAL WASTE SECTOR” on November 26 – 29, 2013 at Concourse Convention Center, San Roque, Legaspi City.

In this regard, I encourage you and your environment officers to attend SWAPPCon 2013.
