Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo explains to the residents and barangay officials of Camanjac the necessity and urgency of putting up a Materials Recovery Facility and Sanitary Landfill in an estimated 10-hectare lot in Barangay Candau-ay.
The Mayor assured the residents that there will be no actual construction of said facilities and dumping of garbage in the purchased lot unless the Department of Environment and Natural Resources approves the twin projects.
Mayor Remollo was accompanied by Councilors Alan Cordova, Lilani Ramon, Karissa Tolentino-Maxino, Joe Kenneth Arbas, Michael Bandal, Manuel Arbon and SK President Danni Tolentino.
He asked those protesting the site of the MRF and SLF to offer a different site that will pass all the DENR requirements with the owner of the property manifesting willingness to sell.
Mayor Remollo clarified that the deed of donation also provided that in the event the lot in Candau-ay will not pass the DENR standards, the property may be returned to the owner, who is likewise obliged to return the amount paid of his lot unless the city government will use the same property for other public purpose.
