Several trees have been cut (with required permits) inside the Candau-ay lot to begin the construction of a central Materials Recovery Facility or MRF that has been approved by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

This is part of the city government’s preparations in closing down the Candau-ay dumpsite and to effectively manage our solid wastes.

All garbage brought to the central MRF will be segregated: biodegradable can be converted into organic fertilizer, recyclables will be sold, plastic wastes will be turned into chairs for public schools and the residuals (dili mapuslan) will be buried at the sanitary landfill.
