BASILAN ---- The local government of Lamitan City in the province opened to public this week its "Tulip Garden," a showcase of artificial tulips fashioned from recycled materials.

The setting up of the Tulip Garden is meant to highlight the cooperation of the local communities in Lamitan City in furthering a domestic waste management program complementing the environment-protection thrusts of the office of Gov. Jim Salliman.

The office of the now second-termer Salliman and the Lamitan City LGU are cooperating in addressing environmental concerns and in protecting sources of water in the city, home to mixed Muslim and Christian settlers.

The Lamitan City government and the provincial government of Basilan are both holders of the vaunted Seal of Good Local Governance from the office of Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año.

The Tulip Garden showcases the viability of recycling non-toxic wastes to forestall environmental issues and public health problems.
