Heavy equipment deployed by the city government are operating to create a network of interior roads so that garbage compactors and trucks will unload their trash right inside the middle of the dumpsite. This will ensure that garbage will no longer spillover in the street.

This is a temporary set up as the city government already received approval of the closure plan from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The city government will soon implement the actual and physical closure of the dumpsite with the establishment of a Materials Recovery Facility and a Sanitary Landfill in the newly acquired 4.5 hectare lot in the outskirts of Barangay Candau-ay.
