Personnel from the City Environment and Natural Resources Office inspect the operation of the Materials Recovery Facility in Barangay Bantayan, which is one of the five barangay with MRFs currently operating.

The MRF serves as the repository of all collected recyclable materials from households and business establishments where the solid wastes are sorted including those than can be sold or the residuals that can be disposed in the sanitary landfill.

Barangays Looc, Piapi, Calindagan and Junob are also operating MRFs that greatly helped reduced the volume of trash generated by residences and businesses.
