Based on the approved Safe Closure and Rehabilitation Plan of the Candau-ay dumpsite, the city government will build a Materials Recovery Facility large enough to house several sections to serve as the temporary storage, consolidation and transfer, or processing of waste material (sorting, treatment, or recycling).

All the solid wastes will be segregated into: biodegradable, non-biodegradable, recyclable and residual. Nevertheless, smaller MRFs will be established in cluster of barangays to further lessen the volume of trash brought to the main MRF.

The MRF, which will established in the newly acquired property in Barangay Candau-ay, can accommodate the city’s garbage compactor trucks and waste sorters. Residual wastes will be buried inside the sanitary landfill within the same property.
