Civil works continue for the P 7 million Central Materials Recovery Facility in the 8-hectare lot in Barangay Candau-ay that will serve as the site for both the MRF and sanitary landfill upon the closure of the dumpsite. The Central MRF, which was approved by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, is now 35% complete according to proponent Engr. Leticia Duran.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said that 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.
Once the Eco-Park and Waste Disposal Facilities are complete and operational, the Candau-ay dumpsite will be closed permanently.
