For the last 12 years, MEF have been instrumental in the establishment of over 1,000 Materials Recovery Facilities (MRF) in the country. This was achieved by conducting workshops and seminars to over 2,500 barangays, 100 Cities and Municipalities, and hundreds more from the academe, NGO’s, government agencies, religious organizations and private sectors. A total of more than 130,000 people – from Mayors, Barangay Captains, Church and community leaders, government agencies and academes and even to students and housewives attended the workshops and seminars.

In the 23rd Southeast Asian Games, MEF played an active role in implementing a waste prevention and recycling program geared at making the event more earth friendly.

Recently, the Provincial Government of Northern Samar declared zero waste management (ZWM) as its framework and long term goal for the province thus becoming the first province to have a province wide Zero Waste Management Plan.

The MEF Board and Trainers are conducting more workshops all over the country.
